For roasted asparagus:

For the Lemon, Garlic, Shallot Butter:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 shallots diced finely
  • 1/4 cup butter cold, cubed, divided
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


  • sliced lemons


For roasted asparagus:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Snap or cut off the ends of the asparagus.
  • In a large bowl or container combine the asparagus and olive oil. Toss until all the pieces of asparagus are coated well.
  • Transfer asparagus to sheet pan and spread out in one even layer.
  • Place in oven and cook for between 10 to 14 minutes, depending on how well done you like your asparagus.
  • Remove from oven and set aside until butter is ready.

For the Lemon, Garlic, Shallot Butter:

  • I typically start my butter while the asparagus is in the oven so it times out well and everything is hot when served.
  • In a medium pan combine the olive oil and lemon juice. Start to cook over medium heat. Add shallots and cook for a few minutes, just until the start to turn golden brown, but aren't crisp yet. Add butter, stirring as it melts. Add garlic, cook 1 minute more. Remove pan from heat and pour over asparagus.
  • Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
