    Sashacrab's Note:

    This is my favorite way to prepare asparagus. I try other recipes, but always come back to this one. It's also super fast to prepare, which is always nice.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Snap off tough ends of Asparagus. Remove scales if desired.
    2. 2
      Cover & cook Asparagus in a small amount of boiling water for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.
    3. 3
      Drain & rinse with cold water (I throw some ice cubes on top of them to stop the cooking).
    4. 4
      Combine Vinegar, Sesame Oil, & Sesame Seeds in large Zip-Lock bag.
    5. 5
      Add Asparagus.
    6. 6
      Chill 2 hours, turining occasionally.
    7. 7
      I double the recipe with 1 lb of Asparagus. Sometimes I cut back on the Red Wine Vinegar if I cooked the Asparagus too long.

      Add me to this recipe's list of admirers. I steamed the asparagus until tender crisp then cooled as directed and patted dry. I probably marinated closer to 3 hours and then transferred to a serving dish for later. Really flavorful and pretty. My DS love asparagus and this is another way to enjoy it. Thanks for sharing. *Made for PAC Spring 2010*

      Yummy! Quick and Healthy Recipe. Without heaps of ingredients and on the table in not time (if you skip the chill part). I made this recipe first and left in standing in room temperature for about 30 minutes, until I prepared the rest of the dinner. It seem to work well and the dressing was not overpowering but subtle. The whole family enjoyed this recipe the asparagus was very crisp. Served with Hoisin Marinated Wing Pieces, Gomae - Japanese Style Spinach Salad & Quick Ginger Carrots - Thank you Sashacrab for posting your recipe.

      This pairs well with grilled salmon. I normally am not a huge fan of asparagus, would eat a little bit just so I can say I did. But this recipe makes me want to eat a bunch, and the leftovers are even better!
