Be sure not to microwave the sauce for too long or it will curdle. If the sauce gives off a little oil in heating, beat with a whisk to reincorporate the oil.
- 1 lb. asparagus spears
- 1/2 cup(s) mayonnaise
- 1/4 tsp. grated lemon peel
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- pinch ground red pepper
- Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until bright green and nearly tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain well.
- In small microwavable bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Microwave on high 10 to 15 seconds or until just warm, and serve over cooked asparagus.
