    Annacia's Note:

    This is wonderful when that spring asparagus arrives on the supermarket shelves. I've also made this using lime with great results. This makes a light amount of the drizzle double it if you would like all of the asparagus well coated.

    1. 1
      Simmer, steam or roast the asparagus until tender but still firm.
    2. 2
      Use a paper towel to remove any residual water from the asparagus.
    3. 3
      Place the butter in a microwave proof container (I use a glass measuring cup) along with the lemon juice and chopped mint.
    4. 4
      While the asparagus is cooking warm the butter to the point where it's not quite all melted.
    5. 5
      Remove from the microwave and stir to finish melting the butter and mix the lemon juice and mint nicely together.
    6. 6
      Drizzle the butter mixture over the still hot asparagus.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle the lemon zest over the top if using.

      This recipe had a great success in my family as it was DELICIOUS!
      I had asparagus on hand and all the other ingredients and as I saw your recipe I asked my DH if he agrees to try this...with lemon and mint? Yes, will see.
      The sauce resulted very creamy and the butter-lemon juice combination resulted very cream. The mint addition was the non plus ultram!
      Thanks a lot for sharing this wonderful recipe; you are really a great cooker and teacher!
