I made this when my parents were over for dinner, and added ginger, as suggested by another reviewer, and it got raves. Apparently it makes an excellent dipping sauce for sushi as well. Since I don't eat asparagus myself, I didn't actually try it this time, but it was so well-received I think I might have to try it on something else - maybe green beans. Update: I did indeed try it one green beans, and it was indeed quite tasty.
This was pretty good. I'm on a low carb diet and was looking for low carb snackables. I prepared the recipe as written, tasted the marinade, then decided to add some grated ginger. I used splenda instead of sugar, and used toasted sesame seeds instead of the nuts. I will be making asparagus again this way. Thanks for the recipe.
