Sesame Soy Grilled Asparagus


  • Makes4 to 4 servings

This is my new favourite way to cook asparagus.


  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tsp brown sugar

  • 750 g fresh asparagus, trimmed

  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  • Preheat the barbecue to medium. Lightly spray a grill-top cooking grid with non-stick vegetable oil spray.

  • In a bowl, mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic and brown sugar. Add the asparagus and toss until evenly coated with the mixture. Place the greased cooking grid on the grill and arrange the asparagus on it. Cook, turning once or twice, until asparagus is lightly grilled but tender and still crisp – 8 to 10 minutes. Remove to a serving plate and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
