These are very delicious! The asparagus is delicately flavored from the lemon, and the vinegar is not too heavy. They are simple to make and quick, too. I cooked mine for just 4 minutes, since I like my asparagus a little crisp. I served these with baked salmon and dijon vinaigrette potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!
