Another good one Dorothy. I did this up ahead of time and served it cold. I used more garlic and sesame oil and liberally sprinkled with sesame seeds. Again, thank you Dorothy.
This dish is destined to be a regular side-dish in my house. I usually microwave asparagus, but the addition of this super easy sauce takes a standard preparation and turns asparagus into a flavor-packed, elegant dish. I love that the ingredients are all items I usually have in my pantry. This is my 1st review, thank you Derf for offering something that will become a frequent pleasure to make and eat. I made it to accompany salmon and it was fabulous.
This was a nice change of pace and it was very easy to prepare. We tried it at room temp but enjoyed it MUCH better when served chilled.
