British Asparagus w/ Chilli and Lime Butter

This is what i do when i am home alone .When i am really bored to cook  ,  i Saute the vegetables i have and make a quick dip for it . Bingo lunch is done . When i was looking for recipes from UK , majority were pies and scones . I wanted to make a simple dish for me and i had a bunch of Asparagus too . So  landed in a quick Asparagus recipe . I had tweaked the recipe according to my taste.
