My fiance loves this recipe. We often eat it with BBQ during the summer.

I tossed the asparagus with extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil before roasting and I also went a little lighter on the lemon juice salt and black pepper in the second coating. Very tasty.

I took a look at this recipe and decided to try it since we love oven baked asparagus. However for 2 people 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper sounds like quite a lot! I wound up using much less--about 1/4 teaspoon of each was quite enough for us on about 3/4 pound of asparagus. In addition I coated the asparagus with 1 tablespoon of olive oil before I placed it in the oven and when done I tossed it with only 1 tablespoon of lemon juice combined with 1 teaspoon of butter. This was ample seasoning for our tastes. Of course more of any of the ingredients may be added if desired. Oh and I only did 5 minutes under the broiler. 15 minutes would have turned my beautiful asparagus into crispy critters!

The asparagus were great but I didn't like the lemon butter sauce.

Fantastic! I have NEVER had such good asparagus. I was afraid to use the broiler (I haven't done that before)so I baked it at 450 for about 20 minutes. Instead of vegetable oil I sprayed with Pam. Oh my God this is good! Thank you SO much for sharing!

Loved this! The cooking time is on point! But I didn't use FRESH lemon juice (I didn't have any) so I used equate brand lemon juice instead and it came out VERY citrusy and sour. What I'll do next time: - coat 2 bunches of asparagus with olive oil and salt and pepper and a sprinkle of garlic powder - mix 3 tbsp of butter and 3 tbsp lemon juice together for the sauce (a little goes a long way)

Super easy fresh and delicious pairs very well with light seafood dishes. For example I served it alongside seared scallops on a bed of cauliflower purée. I will definitely make this again.

Cooked in less than 15 minutes but I may have had the broiler set too high. Otherwise quite tasty. Love the sauce just as it is - might add a bit of garlic powder next time.
