Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus , about 500 g
  • 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce , or hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 tsp grated fresh ginger , 1/2 tsp bottled chopped ginger

Instructions

  • Partially fill a large frying pan with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, snap tough ends from asparagus and discard. In a small bowl, stir teriyaki with ginger and chili-garlic sauce. Add asparagus to boiling water. Boil 3 minutes. Immediately drain off water. Return pan with asparagus to burner. Reduce heat to medium. Add teriyaki mixture. Stir often until asparagus is tender-crisp and evenly coated with sauce, 1 to 3 minutes. Turn onto a plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
