  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • Ā½ teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 lemons


  • Preheat oven to 450 F. 
  • Rinse asparagus and cut off the woody ends. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet or roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 TB oil, vinegar, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  • Roast 10-12 minutes depending on the thickness of your asparagus.
  • While the asparagus roasts, heat the remaining 1 TB olive oil in a heavy bottom pan. 
  • Halve the lemons, remove any seeds near the cut, and set lemons cut-side down in the hot pan for 4-5 minutes until they're charred.
  • Remove asparagus from the pan, and serve immediately with the charred lemons.  Squeeze lemon juice over the asparagus, or allow guests to each have their own lemon half to juice.
