Then, soak in salt water or apple cider vinegar water for 3 minutes and rinse again thoroughly.
Preheat the oven at 400º.
Cook asparagus in boiling water for 1 minute and rinse in cold running water.
Lay lemon and orange slices on the lined sheet, top with asparagus laid out in a single row.
Drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
roast at 400º for 8 minutes. If your asparagus are very thin, start checking at 6 minutes.
