Citrus Asparagus

Asparagus has been a prized delicacy for over 2,000 years.   No wonder I love it so much!  Asparagus is also loaded with nutrients and antioxidants.   You can roast, grill, or fry asparagus.  My favorite is to combine it with whatever citrus I have available.  Feel free to substitute the oranges with Clementine cuties, or lemons.  Citrus gives a lovely flavor to the already great taste of asparagus.
