      I'd never had asparagus with lemon and it was a wonderful change - word of advice ... watch how much lemon you use :)

      Our local super had a sale on asparagus and I decided to try this recipe Friday night. The lemon and oregano gave the asparagus a surprisingly wonderful flavor. The asparagus was a side dish to my Oven Baked Maine Fish. Will definite keep it in my recipe file. Thanks, Bergy!
