I was very surprised to find that I really liked this recipe a lot. I used 1/2 red onion and probably about 30 spears of asparagus because I like the veggies, but the recipe was great as is too. The reduction gave it a very nice flavor. (Just don't breath in through your nose over the stove top as you're boiling the reduction. That will clean out your sinuses.)
