Orange-Glazed Asparagus


  • 1 bunch asparagus, tough ends snapped off
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp Zest of an orange


  • Toss asparagus with salt. Arrange in a large skillet with a tight lid. Add oil and juice to skillet and cover.
    Turn burner on high. When asparagus starts to steam, bring it to medium heat, 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.
