This was so good I couldn't resit posting it. It was on a little ticket attached to the asparagus I bought, grown in Mexico. Quite different and quite delicious!! I tweeked it to suit our tastes. (One hour chill time not included in cook time)

This asparagus was delicious, if you could snag a piece that had breading on it! I had big problems trying to keep the breading on, and mainly wound up globbing the now wet breadcrumb mixture onto the asparagus prior to refrigeration. I would have given 5 stars for flavor, if not for this problem - did I do something wrong?
