Great asparagus dish! The lemon really lifts this nicely, and the hazelnuts add a fantastic crunchy texture. I substituted hazelnut oil for the olive oil, which I highly recommend. Yum! Thanks misscrys79! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
Lemony delicious! We grilled the asparagus instead of steaming it. I made the "sauce" in advance and I was glad I did - because while it sat 30 minutes or so, the flavor of the hazelnuts permeated into it. Usually I put olive oil and salt on before grilling. By adding the sauce afterwards, I used much less oil and still got lots of flavor with fewer fat grams. Thanks!
