Original recipe yields 5 servings

Directions

  1. Place asparagus and hoisin sauce into a resealable plastic bag and shake several times to coat asparagus with sauce. Allow to stand at least 30 minutes. For best flavor, refrigerate and marinate overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove asparagus from bag and shake off excess hoisin sauce; lay asparagus spears onto the grill and cook, turning every 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides of the spears show grill marks and hoisin sauce has caramelized onto the asparagus, 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Transfer asparagus to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

Easy - delicious and cooks so fast - I pulled the meat off the grill - tossed these on - by the time the meat had rested the asparagus was done. Perfect.

I really enjoyed this simple recipe for grilled asparagus, and I didn't change a thing. The hoisin sauce gives a slightly sweet flavor that balanced out any tendency toward bitterness. I will make this again!

It is a winter time and I don't use my grill. Instead I baked asparagus for 15 mins on 400F, keeping souse on. Just before serving I sprayed asparagus with a little of lemon juice. It turned out great. Cannot be more happy: easy and tasty. The recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you, yorkc39!
