Preparing Lemon Pepper Roasted Asparagus is the perfect side for my salmon but is also delicious with any grilled or baked meat, poultry, and seafood. Wash and trim fresh asparagus (I like small stalks), placing on a roasting pan. Drizzle Olive oil over vegetable, coating completely. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning over asparagus and roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes or as desired. Absolutely delicious and satisfying yet nothing could be simpler. Serve this meal with a Spring mix salad with a simple oil and vinegar dressing. Dinner is served!
