A bit too much lemon for my taste but overall tasted good. I cooked mine a few minutes longer and turned down the heat since I like my asparagus softer.

Loved it

A go to recipe for a delicious side. Very quick and easy. Make sure not to overcook asparagus.

This is a super easy side dish and I make asparagus this way all the time now
