  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus trimmed
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 dash Sriracha
  • 1 pinch salt plus additional for salting the water
  • black sesame seeds as needed for garnish
  1. Get a large pot of water on the stove and bring it to a boil. Once the water is boiling, salt it generously. While the water comes to a boil pre-heat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with foil. Then fill a large bowl with ice and water to get ready to blanch the asparagus.
  2. Boil the asparagus for just 30 seconds to a minute, until they are a gorgeous green color but not completely cooked. Use tongs to remove them directly into the bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and set that green color. Then take the blanched asparagus and line it up in a single layer on the lined baking sheet.
  3. Take a small bowl and stir the sesame oil, soy sauce, Sriracha and salt together. Pour the mixture over the asparagus and use the tongs to thoroughly toss the asparagus in the liquid to completely coat it. Get the tray into the oven to roast the asparagus for 15 minutes.
  4. Once it's done, take the asparagus out and let it cool for a minute. Sprinkle the black sesame seeds on top. Then just serve immediately with your favorite main course! It goes well with so many things. Enjoy!
