Directions

Lemon Herb Sriracha Dip: Mix all ingredients together, cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. Asparagus: 1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a skillet over medium-low heat, toast the panko breadcrumbs until lightly golden. Transfer to a plate and add salt. Toss to combine. 2. In a bowl beat eggs and water together to create an egg wash and pour onto a plate. Set up a “work station” with the asparagus, flour that has been placed on a plate, egg wash, toasted panko crumbs with parmesan cheese mixed together, and a baking sheet. 3. To bread the asparagus: First roll an asparagus spear in flour, then egg wash, and then panko crumbs – pressing to adhere. Repeat with remaining asparagus. Place the breaded asparagus on the baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes until the asparagus is cooked but still crunchy. 4. If you had not not completed the sauce yet...While the asparagus is baking, make the dipping sauce. Place all ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and stir to combine, it still needs to sit for at least 30 minutes, so it is best to do this first. 5. Plate, serve, and watch these disappear.
