Lemon-Sesame Asparagus

Serves 6 to 8
Time 10 min
Fresh asparagus, steamed tender-crisp, is sautéed in toasted sesame oil, lightly coated with fresh lemon juice and then sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. Steaming the asparagus first helps enhance its flavor and lessens the amount of oil that is required. Makes a great side dish for a light, al fresco dinner.
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed, each stalk cut diagonally into thirds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
