    Lainey6605's Note:

    Here's a great appetizer for springtime entertaining. The bold, toasty sesame oil adds depth to the classic garlic-lemon sauce. Arrange the crisp-tender asparagus spears, tips up, in a tall, clear glass, with the sesame sauce nearby, served in a radicchio leaf cup to add color. The asparagus can be cooked up to 1 day in advance. The sauce will keep for up to 1 week in a covered container in the refrigerator. Bring both to room temperature for serving.

      I served this with fish and a bean dish done asian style and it fitted in wonderfully. Dh was less enthusiastic becuase the aioli was not sweet enough for him, he said it was a little too sour. I would agree with him .. to a point, this was never meant to be a sweet dish after all. I served this wilh baby asparagus tips and it was a nice accompyment to our meal. Made for Zaar World Tour 2008. Thanks!
