Another delicious way to make asparagus! Our family thoroghly enjoyed this - we followed the directions to a "T" with a couple of exceptions, we did sub fresh squeezed lemon for the orange as I don't really care for oranges. Also I used minced garlic because I had used the last of my whole garlic so I had none to slice. The dish was still delicious and one I would recommend to anyone who enjoys asparagus and the combo of these flavors! Thank you for a great recipe English Rose!! ZWT3.
