Ingredient Notes

  • I prefer the thinnest asparagus spears I can find. If you use thicker ones they may not be as tender.

lemon pepper seasoning

  • Most lemon pepper seasoning will also include salt. If yours doesn’t you will need to add a pinch or two of salt.

  • Toss the spears with oil and layer in the air fryer
