MsM, I steam asparagus in the microwave sometimes, too - turns out great and keeps that lovely green and crispness.
Yup. I do all my veggies (some exceptions like mashed taters) in the microwave without any added liquid. The corn on the cob is so good steamed (sweet and tender) rather than water logged from boiling. And I think the veggies taste much better and keep all the healthy vitamins and minerals. I also dislike mushy veggies unless meant to be soft. Tender crisp is what I like.

I like to add the grated zest of one lemon and the juice of 1/2 lemon to 4 T of softened butter, a bit of parm and grated garlic.

Toss the beefy spears (with woody ends trimmed) in EVOO with kosher salt and minced fresh garlic, then on the grill until they are tender crisp.... not much in the way of green food that's any better than that.

Similar but different - Asparagus wrapped with a strip of prosciuto and a strip of puff pastry (Pepperidge Farm) spiraled up the spear, then baked at 400. My wife makes this for an appetizer when we have friends over, or if she has to take an appetizer when we visit. There are never any leftovers. In fact it's hard to make one batch last until the next comes out of the oven.

You can serve them cold, without the puff pastry. My neighbor did asparagus spears with a little bit of lemon zest sprinkled on them before she wrapped each in prosciutto. I think it might be nice if you even smeared some soft cheese, maybe a herb goat cheese or Boursin, onto the stalk before wrapping in the prosciutto.

asparagus, recipe

Wild Asparagus Picked a bunch today. Amazing how fast they grow over night. Trimmed and blanched. [IMG]http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh628/Joe_Grisafe/006%202_zps5n9aumub.jpg[/IMG] 3 stars 1 reviews
