Directions

First, make the dressing: Zest 1 orange into a bowl, then juice both oranges and boil the juice down in a small saucepan to about 3 tablespoons. Meanwhile, mince the shallot and put it in a ramekin with the vinegar poured over. Set aside 5 minutes. Add the mustard to the zest. When the orange juice has reduced, strain it over the zest. Drain the shallot, discarding the vinegar, and add. Whisk all together, then slowly whisk in the oil. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Bring a saute pan full of water to the boil. Salt it, then add the asparagus and cook until tender. Drain, and immediately rinse under ice-cold water to set the color. Pat dry with paper towels and transfer to a serving platter. Spoon over the sauce. Shave over Parmesan cheese. Grind over some pepper and serve.

    I am having a dinner party and will serve this as a side. I will try to prepare the dressing in advance. Hopefully it will work. I have made a smaller version for myself and loved it.

    This recipe takes ordinary ingredients and turns them in to an elegant, "special occasion" dish. Served with pork for dinner and my husband loved it. Even better yet, I served the leftovers cold as a side dish with a frittata and it was even better!! Two great dishes in one!
