- 24 thick fresh asparagus

Rinse the asparagus under cold running water and pat completely dry with a dish cloth, add the asparagus to a baking tray lined with foil paper, make sure they are all in a single layer and tightly packed together, brush the asparagus with extra virgin olive oil, then season with sea salt, garlic powder and a generous portion of lemon pepper seasoning
