DIRECTIONS

  • Snap off and discard the tough ends of the asparagus.
  • Slice the rest on the diagonal (or, if you know how to do it, use the Chinese rolling cut).
  • Parboil for about two minutes.
  • Rinse in cold running water to stop the cooking process and drain.
  • (Can be done well ahead of time).
  • Heat the oil and toss the scallions for 15- 20 seconds.
  • Add the parboiled asparagus and stir fry on high flame until thoroughly heated.
  • Stir in the salt& sugar, then the almonds.
  • Serve immediately.
