Snap off or trim ends of asparagus; steam in a large pot of water or in an asparagus steamer for 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl and keep warm. Melt butter in a large skillet.

Pour over hot asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to plate and zest with lemon.

Personal Notes:
Sometimes if I want a little different taste I put the coated asparagus on a baking sheet and put it under the broiler for about 5 minutes.

I also serve this with mayonnaise on occasion.
