Notes

  • Make sure to use my homemade Lemon Pepper Seasoning to accompany this recipe
  • Make sure the asparagus woody ends are removed if need be. Some supermarkets sells the tips with the ends trimmed already (mine didn't need trimming).
  • Feel free to switch things up by using another homemade seasoning blend if you want to.
  • Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, simply re-heat, garnish and eat within 2 days.
  • You may need to cook the asparagus spears in batches depending on the size/capacity of your air fryer.
