      I'm not giving this a starred rating as I'm not sure it turned out quite right for me. It could have been that my asparagus was too thick or that I used spray oil instead of butter. I also roasted them at 375 for 45 minutes and they weren't getting browned so I roasted them another 30 minutes at 400. In the end they were slightly blackened and almost dry husks. I did enjoy sucking out some of the middle soft part that I could get and I loved the salt...I used coarse kosher salt. If made right they would probably be like asparagus french fries! I'll try them again some day and re-review if I get better results. Made for PAC Spring 2007.

      I've done this a few times now sometimes with olive oil instead of butter and the amount of lemon juice will vary. I have also added lemon pepper spices sometimes but I am a lemon lover.
