Boil plenty of water in a pan large enough to hold the whole asparagus, and add about 1 teaspoon of salt per 500 cc of water.
Add the asparagus and boil. Boil the asparagus for about 1.5 minutes for thin ones and about 2 minutes for thick ones. It is better to occasionally turn the asparagus upside down with chopsticks.
After boiling, drain into cold water and chill.
Drain thoroughly in a colander to complete the pre-boiling process!
Microwave asparagusIf you want to use only a small amount of asparagus, or if it is too much trouble to boil in water, you can cook asparagus in a microwave oven.
Sprinkle a pinch of salt and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave the asparagus in the microwave (500W) for about 1.5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and place in a colander. If you want to cook only one asparagus, wrap the whole asparagus in plastic wrap and cook for 30 to 40 seconds.
If you get a lot of asparagus and can't eat it all at once, we recommend freezing it raw or after quickly boiling it. Frozen asparagus will keep for about 3 weeks to a month!
