Trim off base of the asparagus. Bring 2 inches of water to boil in a skillet. Add asparagus and salt to taste. Cook until the asparagus bend slightly when you lift them from the stem end. Should take 4-8 minutes. Remove them, drain them on paper towels and pat them dry. Wipe out the skillet. Add butter and cook over medium heat until melted, 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice. Return asparagus to the pan. Sprinkle them with pepper and turn them to coat with the sauce. Serve.
