Roasted Asparagus with Snowflake Salt®, Lemon and Thyme

Asparagus compliments almost anything on the menu, and in this recipe we add tang with lemon, woodsy depth with thyme, and a salty bite with Snowflake Salt®. Harvested in small batches and available in limited quantities, Snowflake imparts a special sparkle along with its mild salinity and satisfying crunch. Warm from the oven and ready to serve as a delicious appetizer, these roasted asparagus spears pair perfectly with seafood, grilled dishes, or in a composed salad.
