A specialty of Shandong province, this dish is traditionally reserved for banquets because asparagus is so expensive in China. But here in the United States, when the price comes down in summer, take advantage of this flavorful dish. Saveur Magazine, August/September 2008 We made a version of this but as it was it would have been way too spicy for our residents.
