Asparagus is a seasonal vegetable and spring is the best time to enjoy it.
This Orange Glazed Asparagus is easy to prepare and the orange juice reduction adds sweetness to it.
- 1 bunch medium thick asparagus
- pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil

|Snap off the tough end of asparagus. It breaks off naturally when you bend it.
|Toss asparagus spears with salt. Arrange in a large (12-inch) skillet. Add oil and orange juice to the skillet.
|Cover with lid. Turn on burner to high. Cook for 5 minutes. Check asparagus with the tip of a knife to make sure that it is tender.
|Lift cooked asparagus to a serving dish, leaving orange juice in pan.
|Continue to cook until pan juices reduce to a glaze consistency, 2 to 3 minutes longer.
|Pour glaze over asparagus and serve.

No matter how my mom makes them, we both agree that we’re not going to experiment with asparagus any more (my dad eats anything so he obviously said it was ok). I can’t describe why the flavour of the asparagus turns me off, but the texture of the vegetable is okay. Just a personal preference I guess.
