  • 1 lb Asparagus
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp butter or ghee, melted
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos*
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Trim the ends of your asparagus stalks. Now cut each asparagus stalk in half.  Brush oil on the asparagus, you can place inside a container with a lid and shake, or use a ziplock bag to ensure it's evenly coated. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  2. Toss the asparagus in the basket of the air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Thinner stalks may only need 8 minutes. 

  3. While asparagus is cooking, make your sauce. Stir together butter, coconut aminos, and balsamic. 

  4. Pour the sauce on top of the hot asparagus and serve!

Recipe Notes

*You can use GF Tamari Soy Sauce in place of coconut aminos if not following a Paleo diet.
