Hoisin sauce and sesame seeds make this a great twist from boring plain asparagus. Your kids will love it too!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place asparagus and hoisin sauce into a resealable plastic bag and shake several times to coat asparagus with sauce. Allow to stand at least 30 minutes. For best flavor, refrigerate and marinate overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove asparagus from bag and shake off excess hoisin sauce; lay asparagus spears onto the grill and cook, turning every 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides of the spears show grill marks and hoisin sauce has caramelized onto the asparagus, 4 to 6 minutes.

  • Transfer asparagus to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

It is a winter time and I don't use my grill. Instead I baked asparagus for 15 mins on 400F, keeping souse on. Just before serving I sprayed asparagus with a little of lemon juice. It turned out great. Cannot be more happy: easy and tasty. The recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you, yorkc39! Read More

Easy - delicious and cooks so fast - I pulled the meat off the grill - tossed these on - by the time the meat had rested the asparagus was done. Perfect. Read More

I really enjoyed this simple recipe for grilled asparagus, and I didn't change a thing. The hoisin sauce gives a slightly sweet flavor that balanced out any tendency toward bitterness. I will make this again! Read More

Needed an Asian side dish to go along with my teriyaki beef and rice. Made this on my grill pan inside and it was delicious. The teriyaki beef dish I made was from Rachael Ray. Have made it quite a few times, using choice top sirloin. Read More

Very good and very easy to make. I'd never grilled asparagus prior to this. I'll definitely make this one again when I'm grilling something else. My date loved it too! Read More

What can I say? It’s asparagus and another way to disguise it’s taste. It works. Read More
