We love asparagus and this is one of our favorites so far. Love the mix of flavors, and is delicious as a side with salmon along with a bright, fresh salad!

Such a delicious way to serve up asparagus. Loved the flavor so much. I made baked lemon fish and coleslaw to have with it and it was delicious!
