    Simply perfect! It's amazing how delicious asparagus can be with just a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper. I got my water boiling and then placed my steaming basket with asparagus over top. I covered the asparagus and steamed for about 4 to 5 minutes. I had asparagus that was just the right thickness, so it didn't take too long at all to cook.
