Simple and tasty – this is a great veggie side dish.
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
1 TBSP olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 TBSP butter
1/2 c panko
1 lemon, juiced and zested
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet, and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender, 18 to 20 minutes, then transfer to a platter.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add panko, and cook, stirring frequently, until deep golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice and zest. Season with salt.
Top asparagus with breadcrumbs.
