  1. 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.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. 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.
  4. Transfer asparagus to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.

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!

Fantastic. Everyone loved it.

Paired with seared sesame tuna and Japanese grilled mushrooms for a super meal.

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

Loved it! Would definitely make this again and again. Tasted great the first night. Had some leftover and when we had them again.....just as good.
