    3. 3
      Meanwhile heat the sesame seeds in a dry skillet also shaking and stirring. Remove from heat when they begin to turn golden.

      I made half the recipe and wish I'd made it all! This is delicious. Forgot to sprinkle the sesame seeds on for the pic, but did add them before eating. So good! I will happily make this recipe again!

      Delicious! I knew it'd be good because I love asparagus and sesame seeds. I used the lite soy sauce to cut down on salt. Made for Fall PAC 2011.
