Spring Asparagus

Seeing fresh, beautiful bunches of asparagus in the market is a sure sign that Spring is here. This incredibly easy and tasty recipe is sure to chase away the winter doldrums!

6 - 8 Servings

1 pound fresh asparagus, rinsed in cold water
3 T olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp sugar
lemon zest

Cut or snap off the tough ends of the asparagus. Spread aspargus on a jelly roll pan. Drizzle with olive oil, then roll asparagus to coat all sides. Slip under the broiler (about 5 " from element), and broil for 4 minutes....ONLY (do not overcook!)

Sprinkle with salt & sugar and place on serving platter or individual plates. Sprinkle with lemon zest and serve immediately.

As a variation, instead of sugar & lemon zest, sprinkle with Parmesan Reggiano....yum!
