    1. 1
      Snap tough ends from asparagus and discard.
    2. 2
      Boil water over high heat in a large frying pan.
    3. 3
      Add Asparagus to boiling water (or alternatively, you can steam the asparagus, which I prefer to do as it stays crunchy).
    4. 4
      Boil for 3 minutes, drain immediately and set aside.
    5. 5
      While asparagus cooks or steams, stir teriyaki with ginger and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl.
    6. 6
      Return pan with asparagus to burner and reduce heat to medium.
    7. 7
      Add teriyaki mixture.
    8. 8
      Stir often until asparagus is tender-crisp and evenly coated with sauce, 1 to 3 minutes.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

      We quite enjoyed this recipe. I barbcued the asparagus and, for a change, I added pickled ginger that I had sitting around. Watch the chili garlic sauce....unless you really like heat, I wouldn't put any more than that in. Thanks Cathy

      Very tasty! I made the hoisin sauce version. Nice touch of sweetness with a bit of heat from the chili sauce. I used black sesame seeds. Went well with an Asian-themed dinner. Thank you for posting this!
