Honey-Soy Asparagus

It’s love at first bite when you get a delectable burst of sweet-and-salty flavor with just the right amount of garlic in this simple side. Just trim the asparagus, and it’s ready to eat in the blink of an eye. —Lisa Daniell, Loveland, Colorado

    Very good! I served it with Asian-themed fish and sesame rice and we liked it a lot.

    I didn't really taste the honey, but it was still very good.

    <p>Wow! That was good! My 3 yr old doesn't like asparagus and she ate it. I bet the sauce would be good on broccoli too. Just be careful not to overlook. I left some asparagus in the pan on warm and it shriveled.</p>
