I love the spring when fresh asparagus is available! This recipe is from "Come For Dinner" by Leslie Revsin.

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.
