Asian Inspired Grilled Asparagus

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"I like to cook this asparagus side dish on an indoor iron grill to get grill marks, but feel free to cook the asparagus any way you like. The key to this dish is the simple soy sauce and sesame oil marinade. This recipe comes from my sister Kaitlin. Sometimes I add a pinch of salt or pepper but don't tell her :)"

I hate asparagus but I made this and I ate so much I hardly ate my steak. I did double or triple the marinade because we had a big bunch of asparagus and let it sit in the fridge for about two ...

I swapped the soy sauce for a healthier alternative of Braggs Liquid Aminos- gives that same flavor but is all natural (and less sodium). I also used only 1 tsp sesame oil and 1 tsp olive oil. V...
