Orange-Glazed Asparagus49 Reviews
“Asparagus cooked in a skillet and topped with a fragrant glaze. Great with Cornish hens.” - by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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.

See morech oven-it worked great; and 3) I turned down the heat after pulling the asparagus out so the sauce wouldn't burn (oranges have a high amount of sugar). Next time: 1)I may add cumin or other dried spice next time to thicken the glaze and spice it up, depending on the main dish and 2) to avoid undesireable day after "asparagus side effects," next time I will use broccoli. That's the only reason I would give 4 stars, but that's not the fault of the asparagus."
"I thought this was good. As another reviewer questioned...how much is a bunch? I know at the supermarket the asparagus is normally sold in bunches, but I don't know if they are "bunched" in any unif..." See moreorm way. Anyway, I did cut the recipe down to only two servings but did add a little extra orange juice and zest. The orange adds a nice tangy zip to it. The sauce never thickened up so I just poured it over and enjoyed."
