Meanwhile, bring enough water, that will cover asparagus, and 1 Tbsp. of the lemon juice to boil in a pot. Add asparagus and cook until just tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Add asparagus to the sesame citrus sauce and toss to coat. Serve hot drizzled with a little more of the sauce and garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
