When I think spring, it usually conjures up scents of lemon. The clean, fresh scent is a welcome addition to the beginning of the warm weather season.

And lemon on asparagus is absolutely amazing and is the perfect melding of fruit and vegetable. I baked the asparagus in the oven but it is just as good on the grill. Be careful not to overcook because the vegetable becomes tough and stringy.

I paired with rice noodles cooked with low-fat coconut milk but any rice or noodle work. The asparagus is also great on top of a salad so you may want to double-up the recipe.
