Crispy Roasted Asparagus

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dojemi

Got this recipe from our local paper. To quote: "The crispy coating on the asparagus - from the mayonnaise and French mustard, along with the Japanese panko breadcrumbs - provides a pleasant and piquant crunch. Panko is available at Asian markets. Serve as an hors d'oeuvre or side dish."

I had a lot of extra asparagus and used this to take an appetizer to a birthday party. It was a relatively easy and quick recipe that everyone liked.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. With a vegetable peeler, peel tough ends of the asparagus.
  3. In a shallow dish, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice.
  4. Roll the asparagus spears in the mixture to coat them.
  5. Spread the panko in a plate and roll the spears until they are well coated.
  6. Transfer them to a cake rack and let them dry for 30 minutes.
  7. On a rimmed baking sheet, sprinkle the oil and line up the asparagus so they're not touching.

  9. Remove them from oven, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and serve at once.
