1 pound asparagus
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Salt and black pepper

Steps:

ASPARAGUS SPEARS WITH SESAME



Asparagus Spears with Sesame image

Provided by Alex Guarnaschelli

Time 1h30m

Yield 6 to 8 small servings

Number Of Ingredients 7

3 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
Kosher salt
1 pound fairly thin pencil asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into 2-inch pieces
4 tablespoons sesame seeds

Steps:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, white wine vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar. Set aside.
  • Prepare an ice bath: Fill a large bowl halfway with ice cubes and add some cold water. Place a colander squarely inside the ice bath. The colander will keep you from having to pick the asparagus out from amongst the ice cubes in the ice bath.
  • Add salt until the boiling water tastes like seawater. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes - you want them to be crunchy. If the asparagus are thin, cook for only 1 minute. Remove the asparagus from the water with a strainer and transfer them to the colander inside the ice bath. Allow them to cool completely for a few minutes and then place them on a kitchen towel to drain any excess moisture.
  • Toss the asparagus, sesame seeds, and the sauce together and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until ready to serve.
