Ready in 30 minutes

Possibly the best asparagus I've ever had


4 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic; minced
1 teaspoon lemon rind; grated
2 tablespoon lemon juice; (I used Meyer Lemon, but regular would work)
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1 tablespoon Parsley; chopped
2 pounds Asparagus

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 425?.

Combine asparagus, 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and garlic in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Arrange asparagus mixture in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 425? for 12 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Combine remaining 2 teaspoons oil, rind, juice, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Arrange asparagus on a platter; drizzle juice mixture over asparagus. Sprinkle with parsley.

We decided this would be great with a steak. The dijon sauce was excellent. Will definitely make again
