Wow! This recipe for Panko Crusted Asparagus came out amazing. I really like asparagus anyway but the breading and aioli took it up several notches. Each bite brought a full symphony of flavor. At first the lemon from the aioli hits followed by the taste of the asparagus and ends with full flavor of roasted garlic. The texture is fantastic, balancing crunchy and tender perfectly.
The recipe consists of two parts, the asparagus and the aioli. You’ll want to start the aioli first since the roasted garlic will take 30-40 minutes to prepare. I cooked mine in the grill. While breading the asparagus your hands will get pretty messy, so make sure you have everything set up before you start the breading process.
