Notes

To brighten the colour of the asparagus and peas, blanch them in boiling water for 30 seconds then immediately transfer them to a bowl of ice water. Dry the asparagus thoroughly before sautéing.
Use thin asparagus spears. If the spears are thick peel them first. Cut diagonally.
Frozen peas can be substituted for the fresh peas however they should be thawed first.
