Asparagus with Warm Citrus Dressing-TNT
I've done this in the microwave as the recipe states & on the grill, it's great both ways!
Asparagus with Warm Citrus Dressing
2 pounds fresh asparagus
2tsp. grated lime rind
2Tbsp. fresh lime juice
Snap off tough ends of asparagus & remove scales with vegetable peeler if desired.
Place asparagus in 11x7x1 1/2 inch dish & cover tightly with plastic wrap, venting one corner.
Microwave on high 6-7 minutes or until tender-crisp, turning dish half turn after 3 minutes. Ste aside.
Place butter in 2-cup measuring cup & microwave on high until melted in 30 second intervals. Stir in lime rind & juice. Pour over asparagus & toss to coat. 8 servings.

When I do it on the grill, I just put the asparagus straight on the grill rack & turn it occasionally until it's tender-crisp.
