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.

Hollandaise sauce is high fat high calorie but I wanted a way to make asparagus have the flavor of it without all the junk. I played around and came up with this simple dressing.
Blanch the asparagus in the water until tender. Drain. Add olive oil or butter and toss. Gently sprinkle the lemon juice over top then add salt and pepper, toss quickly one more time. Serve right away.

I'm an asparagus lover, so I like it fixed most any way. This is a great side dish and I think the eggs and cheese really add to it.
Great fresh asparagus recipe!

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.
