This was super-quick and delicious. The asparagus was perfectly cooked (I let it go to about 3 minutes with medium-sized stalks). I squeezed a little extra lemon juice over the top and added a touch of salt, but it was really very good as-is. I served it with sirloin in mushroom-red wine reduction and a side of sweet potatoes topped with shallots and rosemary (both recipes also CL).
