Directions

  1. Toss asparagus with salt. Arrange in a large (12-inch) skillet with a lid. Add oil and juice to skillet and cover. (The asparagus can be set up a few hours ahead.)
  2. About 10 minutes before serving time, turn burner on high. When asparagus starts to steam, set timer for 4 minutes. Cook until tender, checking at 4 minutes with the tip of a sharp knife.
  3. Transfer cooked asparagus to a serving dish. Add optional zest to skillet and continue to cook until pan juices reduce to a glaze consistency, 2-3 minutes longer. Pour over asparagus and serve.

Since I wasn't sure of how the orange idea would go over with us, I opted out of the orange zest and I think this was perfect without it. The orange juice caramelizes quickly, so watch carefull...

Wow, this was really a pleasant surprise! I really liked it. Changes I made: 1) I used 1 cup of orange juice to create more sauce; 2) I don't have a 12" frying pan with a lid, so I substituted...

To me it was a little salty. Will try again but with less salt..
