The Asian flavors of this dish really make the natural flavors of the asparagus taste amazing.

This is good but we found the seasonings to be a bit too strong for our tastes. If future I would try reducing the amount of ginger and soy sauce. We really enjoyed the almonds with the asparagus. Made for PAC Fall '08
