Servings: four as a side dish
Eight thin lemon slices can be substituted for the orange slices. The cooked orange and lemon slices — skin and all — are edible.

We've been making these asparagus since the recipe first came out in Fine Cooking's quick & delicious pull out section. It's our go-to recipe whenever we see asparagus on sale or when we want a do-ahead side dish that is always a pleaser, whether for a formal dinner or a casual mid-week supper. And yes, some times the thinner orange slices do get a bit brown - that's why I always cook extra. A family favorite!
I really like this recipe, but the orange slices can be bitter. I don't know why they sometimes are and sometimes aren't bitter - perhaps it's the oranges themselves that are different? But it's a nice dish with a lovely presentation. I find it necessary to watch the oranges pretty carefully to avoid burning them. I pull them out before the asparagus, usually.
I have made this a thousand times. It is great every time.
The broiled orange slices are addictive.
