The flavor of the lemon was a little strong at first but the taste grows on you. Nice change from plain asparagus.

We enjoyed this asparagus very much. I only used 2 tbsp of olive oil; I think 3 would be way too oily. I also added a little sugar to the sauce to balance the lemon and dijon. Great way to enjoy asparagus. I'll make this again. Thanx for posting.
