Charred Asparagus with Citrus Bagna Cauda

Charred Asparagus with Citrus Bagna Cauda

The one-two punch of citrus zest and juice balances all that anchovy richness in our new favorite dressing recipe for spring veg.


  • 2 tablespoons skin-on almonds
  • 2 oil-packed anchovy fillets
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1½ pounds asparagus, trimmed

Recipe Preparation

  • Place a rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 350°. Scatter almonds across a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing once, until darkened a little and fragrant, 8–10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then coarsely chop.

  • Cook anchovies, garlic, oregano, lemon zest, orange zest, butter, and 2 Tbsp. oil in a small saucepan over low heat, swirling occasionally, until garlic is golden, 15–20 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in orange and lemon juices and season with salt and pepper. Let bagna cauda sit while you prepare the asparagus.

  • Heat broiler. Toss asparagus with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil on a rimmed baking sheet to coat; season with salt and pepper. Broil until deeply browned in spots and crisp-tender, 5–8 minutes.

  • Toss asparagus and bagna cauda together on a platter; top with almonds.
