Reviews for Asparagus with Orange-Ginger Butter
"Even my "no veggie" spouse thought this was good. Will definitely make this again."
"I made this for a dinner for 6 and everyone loved it..the crystalized ginger and orange are a perfect complement to the asparagus. Be sure to garnish with shredded orange peel for eye "a-peel""
"Too bad we don't have a six star rating. Only way to 'hurt' this recipe is to over cook the Asparagus. That's a crime against nature."
