This dish sure dressed up my meatloaf dinner, excellent. I couldn't find black sesame seeds so I used roasted white ones and instead of Kosher salt I used sea salt. It's a keeper, Thanks

wonderful and different asparagus dish. (it was great to have it a new way besides steamed with mayo on the side.) i did have kosher salt and black sesame seeds. we really liked it and i'll be doing this over and over again. thanks!

I've had black sesame seeds on hand and finally have a great use for them! This dish turned out beautifully--so easy and so yummy!

Excellent flavor and perfectly crisp asparagus. I loved the black sesameseeds with this-they tasted slightly nutty and were the perfect compliment. I will be making this recipe again often.

this was very good. the butter and sesame seeds gave the asparagus a nice nutty taste and the lemon cut some of the richness of the sauce. we ate it with Thai meat balls with red curry sauce and steamed quinoa.

Very elegant! Black sesame seeds make these lemon and butter sautéed asparaguses really quite special. Quick and simple, too.

Both DH & I enjoyed this. I was like a special occasion, using my black sesame seeds! I didn't use the lemon, because I knew he wouldn't like it. Thank you very much for another way to cook asparagus!

Loved it! I had to resist my incessant urge to add minced fresh garlic, but held out and followed the recipe as written. The dish was wonderfully flavored and didn't taste like it was missing a thing; the black sesame seeds were perfect here, and squeezing the lemon over at the end added nice, fresh flavor. Thanks for posting!

I think I would have enjoyed this more had I not used frozen asparagus. Thanks for the idea, I'll will try this again with fresh!
