Ingredients

1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg
1 mL
1/8 tsp

Method

Step 1
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Blanch asparagus for 1 to 2 min., depending on thickness. Immediately transfer asparagus to a bowl of ice water to cool. Remove and pat dry. Refrigerate until needed.
Step 2
Preheat oven to broil. Slice 2 tangerines in half crosswise. Zest the third and set zest aside. Mix cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne and half the salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle cut sides of tangerines with spice mix and set them, spice side up, in a foil-lined roasting pan. Spoon honey overtop of each half.
Step 3
Toss asparagus with oil and remaining salt and pepper and place in a single layer in the pan alongside fruit. Broil in top third of oven until honey has caramelized and asparagus is lightly blistered, about 4 to 5 min. Transfer asparagus to a platter, slice fruit into wedges and arrange alongside. Garnish with the reserved zest.
