These crispy bread crumbs, flavored with anchovies, garlic, parsley and lemon, are a terrific way to showcase delicious spears of roasted asparagus.

  1. 2 pounds asparagus
  2. 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Kosher salt
  4. Freshly ground pepper
  5. 7 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and chopped
  6. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  7. 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  9. 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  10. Juice of one lemon, for drizzling
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. On a baking sheet, toss the asparagus with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once, until golden and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, simmer the remaining 1/3 cup of olive oil with the anchovies over moderate heat, stirring, until the anchovies dissolve. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the panko and cook, stirring frequently, until golden and crispy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley and lemon zest.
  3. Transfer the roasted asparagus to a serving platter. Drizzle with lemon juice, top with the panko and serve.
