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.
