      We prefer our asparagus roasted and for this particular recipe I think it would would better. (Pop in the oven for about 7-10 minutes @ 400ยบ.) We felt there was too much butter and I would reduce by half next time. PS if using green onions, I would not saute them in the butter but simply garnish on top of the asparagus. Used fresh minneola juice from our CSA box and green onions, too. My husband and I both loved this! Reviewed for Veg Tag March and Spain/Portugual: Cebolletas/March.

      This was a really tasty way to dress up asparagus, I thought the orange, mustard, and shallot mix was wonderfully subtle. I would taken a picture but I...uhhh...ate the whole thing. That being said, I probably would have used about half as much butter. Not because it tasted bad, mind you, but I tasted the sauce before I added the rest of the butter and it was just as good but 1/4 as fatty. Thanks for this!
