    Charlotte J's Note:

    Asparagus with an oriental taste. You can microwave the asparagus or cook it on your stove top. You may find the chili puree in the Oriental section at your grocery store.

      This went really well with our Asian style dinner tonight. I halved it to serve 3 but left the sauce amount the same. If I was making it for 6 I'd double the sauce I think. Thanks for a quick, crunchy, tasty side dish. Oh, and I used vegetable oil rather than butter as I felt it went more with tonights other dishes.

      I made this a few days ago, but forgot to review it! This was a delicious and lovely dish that Cam and I both enjoyed. Very easy to put together too.

      This made a great side for tonights grilled chicken and brown rice. I omitted the sauce as I never use soy sauce and we loved them cooked to the recipe and them just sprinkled with a bit of pink sea salt. The green and red are beautiful together and make a delicious and healthy side.
