Directions

  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Lightly cook the asparagus into the boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and immediately plunge the asparagus into a bowl of ice water until the asparagus is cool; drain and pat dry.
  2. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a dish and set aside to cool.
  3. Heat the peanut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and asparagus to the skillet, season with salt and cook until the ginger is fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; toss with the sesame oil and sesame seeds to serve.

Very good, simple but different than regular asparagus. I made this exactly as written and was not disappointed. Sesame oil and seeds are a must--do not omit or change-- as those flavours are what make this recipe unique.

This was wonderful with a great fresh flavor. I used olive oil in place of the peanut oil just because I didn't have any. Everything else I followed exactly. It turned out great.

I love the nutty taste of the sesame seeds and the sharp ginger taste combined with the earthy taste of the asparagus! Great color and taste combination!
