1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Place the asparagus in the water and boil for 5 minutes until cooked but still a little crisp.

2. Drain and arrange on a platter. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and juice, salt, pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil. Serve immediately.

Tip: Try with toasted almonds sprinkled on top
