  4. Add the lemon slices and bay leaf; season with salt and pepper.
  5. Close the bag by folding it over several times and creasing the folds well to retain the steam in the bag.

  8. Shake bag a few times before carefully opening; transfer asparagus to platter.
  9. Drizzle with more oil; serve immediately.
