Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Salt and black pepper

Directions

Special equipment: Wooden toothpicks or bamboo skewers

In a shallow pan, soak skewers in cold water for 1 hour, then drain and set aside.

Preheat grill to high. Snap off the woody bases of the asparagus and discard. Skewer 4 or 5 asparagus spears together, using the toothpicks or 2 bamboo skewers, forming a raft shape.

In a small bowl, combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic and stir with a fork to mix. Brush this mixture on the asparagus rafts on both sides. Season the asparagus with a little salt and lots of pepper.

When ready to cook, place the asparagus rafts on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds as they grill. You can serve the asparagus as rafts or unskewered.
