Directions

  1. Fill a large saucepan with 1/2 inch of water and bring to a boil. Cook asparagus until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain, then rinse with cold water. Return pan to the stove over medium heat, pour in oil, and swirl around pan. Shake excess water off of the asparagus, and toss in oil with sesame seeds, and salt to reheat.

Very quick and easy although I did tweek it a bit (of course). I brushed the asparagus with olive oil and then sprinkled it with a little salt, regular (untoasted) sesame seeds (didn't want to take the time to toast them, I know, busy, busy, busy), and a little lemon juice. Then I grilled them in a preheated grill over indirect heat. It took about 4 minutes. Served this with grilled salmon and grilled potato wedges - awesome!

I used regular sesame seeds instead of black and I toasted them until they were light golden brown. It was delicious...even my "I don't like asparagus" kid said he would eat it like that again. I'll make it again for sure. A small word of advice tho...if you double the recipe (I did, I had two bunches of asparagus)don't double the sesame seeds. There was so much sesame seeds that most of it was left on the skillet.

We loved the end results here. And the cooking instructions were right on for our thin asparagus. What I ended up doing was adding a bit of sesame oil to further enhance the flavor, and I didn't use black sesame seeds, just the regular ones. Will definitely be looking forward to preparing this again. Thank you, ZOPOOH.
