      This was wonderful! I am always looking for new ways to prepare asparagus and this was a definite winner. The slight sweetness from the hoisin sauce really brought out the flavour. Served it with Sesame Seared Tuna and Wasabi Mashed Potatoes. Yum!

      I really enjoyed all the flavors in this dish. And the leftovers were even great the next day cold! The only spot where I deviated, was toasting the sesame seeds. Mine were nice and brown a little sooner than 5 minutes. I had a brand new jar of hoisin just waiting for me to use it in this recipe. Thanks

      Chia, You did good. I nuked the asparagus while cooking the garlic and ginger. I used the chili sesame oil, and olive oil in place of the peanut oil. I also made this with chinese broccoli.Yummy!
