Asparagus So Simple


This dish is as easy as pie! Seriously from your grocery bag to the table in minutes.

All you need is:

Fresh Asparagus

Course Sea Salt

Olive Oil

Fresh Ground Pepper

Fresh Lemons (or lemon concentrate)

Wash the Asparagus thoroughly and pat dry with paper towel, water left on will cause a “steaming” and not roasting outcome.  Cut the ends off (approx.  1″).


Place asparagus on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Drizzle olive oil covering the asparagus.  I sometimes use a brush to make sure they are coated well. Now sprinkle with salt and a generous amount of pepper.  Now squeeze a generous amount of lemon juice over them.  Place in a preheated 425-degree oven for about 10-13 minutes (depending on your oven) Some use a lower degree, and leave in a bit longer.  This will result in floppy mushy asparagus.


Remove from oven and place in dish, drizzle pan droppings and your done!

Sometimes I use a little crushed red pepper to give a little kick to it.
