I didn't realize I was out of EVOO, so I used some half EVOO/Canola oil mixture I found in the cupboards. The glaze didn't thicken for me even after 5 or 6 minutes, so I just gave up and poured what I had over the asparagus. It steamed nicely, but I didn't notice that much orange flavor. My grandma and little sister loved the consistency of the asparagus, but only my grandma commented about the "extra dimension" of flavor that the orange added. I wasn't sure if she was just saying that to be nice because she knew how I made it, or if she just noticed it the most because she got the first serving of asparagus and the orange didn't saturate to the bottom of the asparagus pile. I'll probably try making it again with pure EVOO and soak the asparagus in the orange juice for a bit before cooking it.
