    kiwidutch's Note:

    I just love asparagus, but we were getting bored roasting them on the grill, but I just didn't want to steam them either, so I came up with this twist, one that I have used on my Sesame Broccoli,'s Good! Sesame Broccoli. COOKS NOTE: Wonderful hot or cold! Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do, I would appreciate feedback, Thanks ! ZWT REGION: France.

      Love the sesame oil and seeds on this. I made in the microwave oven cooking for 5 minutes. I added grated fresh ginger and garlic to the soy and sesame mixture. Didn`t use salt for the soy is salt enough for us. Thanks! ;)

      We love asparagus and really enjoyed this dish. I used low sodium soy sauce and added a splash of rice vinegar at the end of cooking to give some brightness and a touch of sweetness to the dish. I served this with an asian marinated pork tenderloin and coconut jasmine rice. What a great meal! thanks!
