  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced shallots, then lower the heat to medium. Cook the shallots, stirring regularly, until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove and place on paper towel-lined plate to drain. Let cool 5 minutes (shallots will crisp more as they cool).
  2. Holding the end of an asparagus spear between your thumb and forefinger with one hand and just below the tip with your other hand, bend the stalk until it snaps; discard the tough end. Repeat with the remaining asparagus spears. Slice the asparagus cross-wise on the diagonal into 1/4-inch rounds. 
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. When the foam subsides, add the asparagus, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring often, until the asparagus pieces are crisp-tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the asparagus to a serving dish and top with the crispy shallots.
