Roasted Asparagus with Caper Dressing

From: EatingWell

Roasting mellows the grassy flavor of asparagus; the caper dressing provides a salty counterpoint. Serve with grilled fish or meat.

 by 1 person
2 bunches  asparagus, (about 2 pounds)
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper, divided
1/3 cup  chopped shallot
1/4 cup  flat-leaf parsley leaves
3 tablespoons  capers, rinsed
2 tablespoons  white-wine vinegar
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Trim tough ends from asparagus; place on a baking sheet. Drizzle the asparagus with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss to coat. Spread in a single layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the asparagus begins to soften and brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
3. Meanwhile, place shallot, parsley and capers on a cutting board and chop together to make a coarse mixture. Transfer to a small bowl and combine with vinegar, the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve the asparagus topped with the dressing.
