  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus, quartered crosswise on an angle
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges for serving
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1 8 ounce container lump crab, picked through


Rinse the asparagus in a colander; leave wet. In a medium nonstick skillet, add the olive oil and asparagus and cook over medium heat until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl, stir together the chives, mayonnaise, lemon juice and ketchup. Add the crab and toss gently to coat. Season with pepper.

Divide the asparagus among 4 plates and top with a mound of the crab mixture. Serve with the lemon wedges.
