Honey-Buttered Carrots

Sweet and zesty, this carrot side dish pairs well with grilled poultry, meats, and seafood.


2 T canola oil
2 C Ready-Set-Serve Carrot Sticks
2 T unsalted butter
2 T honey
2 T Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, roasted until tender
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper


Heat oil in a skillet. Add carrots and saute until tender. Add butter, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Continue stirring to combine all well. Cook for another five minutes or until carrots are soft and sauce has thickened.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
