  • Summary

    Roasting asparagus at a high temperature concentrates its flavor and guarantees a tender -- but not mushy -- texture. To ensure crunchy crumbs, sprinkle them on just before serving.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
    • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
    • Garnish: 1/2 lemon, cut into wedges
