Add some zest and a hint of honeyed sweetness to your side veggies with this quick and easy lemon pepper asparagus.
Today we have baked lemon pepper asparagus with a hint of sweetness from honey, that pairs really well with just about anything. Try them out with some chicken, steak or even seafood. If you’re not too keen about heating up the entire oven for some asparagus, you can even do this over the stove top.
If the lemon juice is not lemony enough for you, feel free to add some lemon zest as well. And feel free to add more honey to taste as well. This recipe is to be used as a general guideline or inspiration from which to build on, based on your personal tastes.
I love the way lemon brings in some life to this recipe. I had some leftover asparagus and lemon so this worked out perfectly. I also used four-color peppercorns to add some color but you can just go with regular black pepper. This recipe is simple. So, so simple but it tastes great!
Enjoy and happy cooking!Print
