Post 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
1/2C. butter
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.

This is from Southern Living Annual Recipes Cookbook 20th Anniversary Edition.

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.

Mmm... I love asparagus. I definatly need to fix this, althought I might move it into a pan instead of the microwave.

My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.
