Roasted Asparagus with Toasted Breadcrumbs Salad

2/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cleaned
¼ cup Delightful Palate’s Balsamic Garlic Honey


Pre heat oven to 400. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, lemon zest, garlic and chili and season lightly with salt and pepper. Stir to combine well so that all the breadcrumbs are well mixed .In a medium size skillet, melt the butter and add the breadcrumb mixture and stir around on low heat until they become golden brown. Let cool and stir the Parmesan and parsley.

Toss the asparagus with balsamic garlic honey vinaigrette to coat and season with salt and pepper. Spread onto a roasting pan and roast on the oven, until bright green and tender, and beginning to brown here and there, around 4-5 minutes depending on the size of the spears. Remove from the oven and place  4- 5 spears of asparagus on each  salad plate and garnish with a healthy dose of toasted bread crumbs.
