Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, 1 to 1 1/2 inches cut off the bottom
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium lemon, zested
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Lay the asparagus on a long double layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss to coat. Spread the spears into a single layer. Fold the edges of the foil to make a tray. Roast in the oven for 5 minutes. Carefully toss the spears with tongs and roast just until tender and tips begin to brown, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with the zest, salt, nutmeg, and pepper, to taste, and toss to evenly distribute. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
