This is one of my favorite dishes at a local restaurant called Cracker's. This is THE best asparagus I have ever tasted!

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
