Lemon-Sesame Asparagus

READY IN: 19mins
Top Review by Kelly M.

In regards to simplicity..simple, fast and very easy to make. Great recipe if you don't have a lot of time. But I was not crazy about the taste. For me, it was too "vinegar-y" I think. I added a bit more oil but it didnt change it much. I love the sesame seed crunch tho, they go nicely with the asparagus.
