Orange-Glazed Asparagus

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Orange zest (optional)

  1. Snap the tough ends off the asparagus.
  2. In an approximately 12" skillet (with a lid) add the asparagus, orange juice, and oil, and turn the heat on high.
  3. Once the asparagus begins to steam, cook it for about 4 minutes, or until desired doneness.
  4. Remove asparagus, and if desired add orange zest.
  5. Allow the juice to reduce another 2-3 minutes, or until volume has reduced by about half. Drizzle the sauce over the asparagus, and serve.
  • If you find the orange flavor to be too strong, use half orange juice, half chicken stock.
  • If your asparagus is particularly woody, use a vegetable peeler on the lower stem, and peel the harder outside down.

Yields 4 servings.
