Asparagus is at its best when you keep it simple. Just a little seasoning and broiling does the trick!
Makes 3 Servings
Set the oven or toaster oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash and trim the asparagus. (Use a knife or break off ends where they naturally snap.) Pat the asparagus dry, and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Sprinkle with the lemon juice, toss to coat, and then sprinkle with the salt.
Broil for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the asparagus turns bright green. Remove, sprinkle with the lemon pepper (if using), and serve.
