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

  • Coat asparagus with vegetable and arrange on a baking sheet. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  • Roast in preheated oven until lightly browned at the tips, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine lemon juice, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon black pepper in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in on high in microwave until butter is completely melted, about 1 minute; stir to combine. Pour butter mixture over roasted asparagus and toss to coat.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
