“I like to cook this asparagus side dish on an indoor iron grill to get grill marks, but feel free to cook the asparagus any way you like. The key to this dish is the simple soy sauce and sesame oil marinade. This recipe comes from my sister Kaitlin. Sometimes I add a pinch of salt or pepper but don't tell her :)”

I've made this twice in the last few weeks and it's delicious. I do it a little bit backwards. I trim the asparagus and marinate it in about 2 tbsp of soy sauce and approximately 4 tbsp of sesame oil along with some finely minced garlic. Then I heat the grill and cook the asparagus. When it's done I pour the marinade over the roasted spears and serve it hot. We all love it. I don't add salt because the soy sauce takes care of that but I do add some freshly ground black pepper.

I really enjoyed this recipe, although was a little salty the first time I made it. Cut back the soy just a little after that. I do everything like instructed, and have even sprinkled with sesame seeds and do a quick seer to warm when it comes time to serve. Get's all kinds of people to eat something they didn't think they liked! Thanks for sharing.

I'm not a big asparagus fan, but this was really good! I did make a few changes, like using Teriyaki Sauce instead of Soy Sauce and I added about a teaspoon of lemon juice and a pinch or two of brown sugar. The sauce carmelized on the asparagus and we all finished off a whole batch of asparagus! Will make again!
