Basic Fiddlehead Ferns

Basic Fiddlehead Ferns
This is a delicious and simple way to serve fiddleheads. The recipe calls for only the most basic ingredients, but the flavors are fresh and delicious, enhanced by just a touch of seasoning.

1 pound fresh fiddleheads
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper


 Rinse the fiddleheads under cold running water and rub the brown chaff away from the coils. Trim all but about 1/8 to ¼ of the stem away from the coil itself. Dry the shoots before cooking by spinning them in a salad spinner then patting them with paper towels.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Add the garlic, parsley, and fiddleheads. Sauté for about five minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

The fiddleheads should be crunchy but tender.
