I can't believe it but I picked my first Asparagus today!  It's really early but with this weather I guess I'm not surprised.  It was only three spears but it will make a yummy dish for me.  Here's a new recipe to try.


Lemon-Tarragon Asparagus

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp minced shallot or green onion
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp tarragon
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt to taste
Cook asparagus in boiling water until crisp tender, approximately 2 minutes. Heat olive oil in sauté pan and sauté onion and garlic. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Stir or whisk together until well blended and drizzle over drained asparagus
