Wonderful! I marinated for several hours, then skewered and grilled the asparagus. Went very well with grilled chicken - fresh ginger is a must. I also added a few black sesame seeds.

I loved this! Didn't even realize it needed to be chilled when I picked it....I just had some asparagus I needed to use! The taste is fabulous...thanks for another great recipe Teresa!

I used no sodium soy sauce (homemade). I let the asparagus in the marinade overnight. I like the taste of sesame oil in it. Thanks Teresa. This is great. Made for Potluck tag
