eat….drink….and be merry….it makes life better!
This dish is as easy as pie! Seriously from your grocery bag to the table in minutes.
All you need is:
Course Sea Salt
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.
