Forgot to rate this! It was wonderful. Can asparagus be anything else? We liked the taste of the ginger with it. This went very well along with grilled thai chicken. I'll make this again!

What can I say – Asparagus is my favorite vegetable! This was simple yet so delicious. I never thought of using ginger with asparagus. This will be a great recipe to experiment with. Thanks for posting! Oh, I'm from Los Jefes de la Cocina for ZWT4.
