DIRECTIONS

  • Steam the asparagus in a covered steamer over boiling water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
  • Or, put the asparagus in a microwave-proof dish; add about 2 tablespoons water.
  • Cover tightly and microwave on high for about 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender.
  • Drain well.
  • Rinse with cold water and drain again.
  • Meanwhile, make the aioli:
  • Stir together all the aioli ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.
  • To serve, arrange the asparagus spears in a tall, clear glass container. Spoon the sauce into a radicchio leaf or small dish, garnish with sesame seeds, and place nearby for dipping.
