Looks fantastic! I do something like this on weekends. I start with a toasted English muffin, place fresh crab meat on it. Then add the poached eggs and then the asparagus, then top it with sauce Bearnaise. It's called Eggs Oscar.
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 simply love asparagus and am in heaven right now because it's asparagus season. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or paper towels.
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.
This dish when served over rice pilaf can be a meal alone or a side dish on a holiday meal.
I know it's an odd title, but it tastes good.

Go green, they are healthy.
Heat pan and add oil. Add remainder of ingredients except asparagus. Cook until it comes to a boil. Shut off flame or move pan off ring. Now add asparagus and toss lightly.
In a saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour, and cook until thick. Gradually stir in milk and cook until bubbly and thickened.
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!
I like this as a sort of brunch recipe, but really it's good any time. Quick and easy, too, because it's done in the microwave.
Melt margarine in pan. Add flour to make creamy consistency. Add milk until thickened, then add cheese. Toast bread slices and butter them. Put turkey and asparagus on toast.
Made with scrambled eggs, butter, bread, and asparagus, this recipe makes a filling meal for 2 people or a side dish for 3 to 4 people.
Another flavor for asparagus because I love asparagus ;-) Bring water to boil and cook asparagus over medium heat until crisp but tender. Mix honey, mustard, lemon juice and olive oi in small bowl. Drizzle mixture over cooked and drained asparagus and serve.
Melt butter in a small non-reactive saucepan over low heat. Stir in lemon juice, mustard, pepper and all but 1/2 tsp. chives. Cover and keep warm over lowest heat.
In deep dish, place drained asparagus. Gradually add oil to vinegar, using whisk to blend. Add remaining ingredients to oil and vinegar and pour mixture over asparagus.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer bottom of a glass baking dish with asparagus. (I use frozen asparagus).
This is a perfect snack for someone on a low-carb diet. You could have a few of these for lunch or for a light snack.
This flavorful dressing gives a delicious twist to steamed asparagus.
Eating more vegetables will improve your health. Here is a simple but delicious way to cook asparagus:
Have you ever fried several bacon strips just because you needed the grease for seasoning? This is one of my favorite recipes and it will utilize any unused cooked bacon. These rolls go especially well with red-sauced Italian food.
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.
