directions

  • Snap tough ends from asparagus and discard.
  • Boil water over high heat in a large frying pan.
  • Add Asparagus to boiling water (or alternatively, you can steam the asparagus, which I prefer to do as it stays crunchy).
  • Boil for 3 minutes, drain immediately and set aside.
  • While asparagus cooks or steams, stir teriyaki with ginger and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl.
  • Return pan with asparagus to burner and reduce heat to medium.
  • Add teriyaki mixture.
  • Stir often until asparagus is tender-crisp and evenly coated with sauce, 1 to 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    We quite enjoyed this recipe. I barbcued the asparagus and, for a change, I added pickled ginger that I had sitting around. Watch the chili garlic sauce....unless you really like heat, I wouldn't put any more than that in. Thanks Cathy

    Very tasty! I made the hoisin sauce version. Nice touch of sweetness with a bit of heat from the chili sauce. I used black sesame seeds. Went well with an Asian-themed dinner. Thank you for posting this!

    Excellent asparagus! I used hoisin sauce and next time will try the teriyaki. Oh, and I did steam them rather than boil them (personal preference). My family snarfed them down. Thanks Cathy, this one's a keeper!
