    Easy, quick. I added a pinch of red pepper for an extra kick. Enjoyable recipe.  -  28 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Everyone loved this. I did cut the lemon juice down to 1/4 cup and was still a little too sour for me. But overall the asparagus turned out pretty good!  -  13 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  25 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
