Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Trim the tough woody ends off the bottoms of the asparagus, and lay them out on the baking sheet. In a small bowl mix the melted butter, lemon juice, garlic, honey, salt and pepper together and drizzle over the asparagus.
Shake the pan to roll the asparagus in the seasoning. Then sprinkle panko bread crumbs over the top.
Roast on the upper rack for 7-10 minutes. 7 minutes for baby asparagus, and longer for thick asparagus. Serve warm.
