Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. asparagus
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus 1 Tbsp. for cooking water
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Toasted sesame seeds for garnish, if desired
  • 3 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • Salt to taste, if desired

Directions:

Prepare asparagus and break into bite size pieces, if desired.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add sesame seeds and cook, while stirring, over moderate heat, until lightly browned. Add lemon juice, orange juice, and sesame oil. Whisk to completely blend. Add salt to taste.

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.

Easy and flavorful! The easiest way to grill asparagus is to thread several asparagus spears on to two parallel soaked wooden skewers and repeat, if necessary, until all are skewered before coating with the oil mixture.

In the South, we don't always get enough asparagus to have a full meal because it doesn't quite like to grow as good as in the North.

When buying asparagus look for fat stalks with tightly closed tips. Trim the bottom off. If it's tough keep cutting small portions off the end until it's more tender.
