Spicy Stir Fried Asparagus

I have really been enjoying asparagus this spring, and have found the quick fry method of cooking it to be a favorite (last year I roasted it all the time).  You can

1 ½ pounds  asparagus            
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 serrano or other fresh hot chile, finely chopped
  • A large handful of basil, mint and cilantro leaves                  
    1. Snap off and discard the tough bottoms of each asparagus spear. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch lengths
    2. In a wok or cast-iron skillet, heat the oil until nearly smoking. Add the asparagus, season generously with salt and pepper and stir well, making sure the asparagus is coated and glistening with oil. Continue to stir-fry over high heat for about 1-3 minute, depending on the thickness of the asparagus, until it looks bright green and barely cooked. Add the garlic, ginger and chile and stir-fry for 30 seconds more.
    3. Transfer to a serving platter and scatter leaves on top. Serve immediately
