- 2 lb asparagus, woody ends trimmed
- coarse sea salt
- freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp chopped fresh dill (or 1/2 tsp dried)
- Turn oven to broil.
- Place a asparagus on a baking sheet in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Give the pan a shake to distribute the oil.
- Broil 5-7 minutes or until bright green and ends are just starting to char. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn.
- Heat butter in a small saucepan. Add garlic and cook over low heat for 1 minute.
- Whisk in dijon, lemon juice and dill. Cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
- Plate asparagus and top with dijon sauce. Serve immediately.
- Skinnier asparagus will take less time to cook than thicker asparagus.
- I love how tangy the dijon makes this sauce. If you want a less strong dijon taste, add an extra tablespoon of butter, or reduce the dijon to 1 tablespoon.
- The sauce can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for a day or two in an airtight container. Heat it gently on the stove before serving.
- If cooked too long, the sauce may appear to separate. Just give it another stir to combine it again.
