Fresh Sesame Asparagus
Serve with any meat, fish or poultry entree.

Servings: 4

1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds, lightly toasted
Kosher salt to taste

To toast sesame seeds, toss them in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat until they are fragrant. Set aside.

Fill a large saucepan with 1/2 inch of water and bring to a boil. Cook asparagus in boiling water until just tender-crisp, about 3 - 5 minutes. Drain, then rinse with cold water. Return pan to the stove over medium heat, pour in oil, and swirl around pan.

Shake excess water off of the asparagus, and toss in oil with sesame seeds, and salt to reheat.
