      I skipped the first step and mixed everything in the skillet. It cooded crisp tender in 15 minutes. I brought the pan juices to a boil and boiled down a few minutes before adding the lemon juice. Everyone thought it was a wonderful recipe and as usual the directions were wonderful. Thanks for sharing. I am sure I will do make this again.

      This is an excellent way to make asparagus. I followed the recipe exactly as written and my asparagus was cooked (to my liking) in 13 minutes. The mint detracted from the taste of the asparagus as it really overpowered the asparagus so, next time, I think I will leave it out but follow the rest of the recipe exactly. Thanks CL!
