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.

Yes this is a great way to make asparagus...it was wonderful, and very tasty,...I omitted the mint, as my DH just isn't wild over the taste. It did not take long to cook... and we enjoyed this dish very much...I made this to go along with Mep's Famous Chicken...it was a wonderful dinner...thank you CountryLady, for such a wonderful asaragus dish, I will look forward to making this asparagus again very soon....:-)... KC

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!

Very good. An unusual way to prepare asparagus - we'll make this again.

Lovely way to cook asparagus. I used white but will make it next time with green asparagus since the white ones take longer to cook. I added 2 tablespoons of chicken stock because of the longer cooking time and used half of the mint.
