Sous Vide Asparagus with Garlic-Shallot Oil Recipe

Asparagus can be cooked many different ways, but using sous vide can remove most of the timing pressure. I especially like using sous vide on the thicker asparagus, since the lower temperature allows it to cook through without overcooking the outsides. For this recipe I like to combine the cooked asparagus with some olive oil infused with shallots and garlic then top it all off with some tarragon and lemon zest.
