INGREDIENTS

1 Tbsp Entube Harissa paste
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp honey (not raw or thick, but a runny version) 1 lemon, zested and juiced (reserve the zest)
1/4 Tsp kosher salt
1/4 Tsp cracked pepper
1/2 Lb of asparagus, ends trimmed

INSTRUCTIONS

1)  Mix the Harissa paste, olive oil, honey, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl with a whisk. 

2)  Spread the asparagus in a shallow baking dish and cover with the marinade. Turn to cover well. Marinate for up to one hour. 

3)  Heat your griddle pan or heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat. When heated through, add the asparagus in one layer (do two batches if necessary) and cook on each side for 4 minutes. Flip and do the other side for 4 minutes. 

4) Serve hot with the lemon zest sprinkled over. Can also be served room temperature as part of a salad etc. 

NOTES

I state that this serves four. It really depends on the size of the asparagus you are able to source. Or how hungry you are. It could serve two, but you'd have to be really hungry for asparagus!!
