  • Heat a wok over high heat until a few drops of water added evaporates within 1 minute. Add oil, garlic and asparagus and stirfry for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add wine and stock and reduce heat to medium. Add sugar and stirfry for 1-2 minutes or until asparagus is just tender. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
