Four stars your way....five stars mine. Instead of oiling the grate I cut a piece of foil paper and matched it in size to a cookie sheet spread out my asparagus and then brushed liberally with the marinade. I grilled everything on the foil folding the edges up to keep the marinade from falling into the fire. My way also involved a pound of asparagus to the stated amount of marinade plus garlic and onion powders. I tossed the asparagus twice and basted liberally both times. Read More

This was an easy, tasty recipe. I followed it as posted, except I used home-made foil "pans" to hold the asparagus and basted a couple of times. Added garlic powder as another reviewer recommended. Read More

Yummy! We loved asparagus and grilled is my favorite way so we make it weekely in our house. Loved the flavors here. Decreased the sesame oil to 1 tblspn and the soy (which I used low sodium) to 4 tblspns. Also added some cracked pepper. Delicious! Read More

I loved the recipe.The seasonings was just right to enhance the flavor. I put my asparagus in tin foil wrap loosely placed on the grill. Came out nice and tender. Read More

I thought this was delicious. I also thought it was very salty but that may have been due to letting it marinade in the soy/sesame mix a little too long. I also added some minced garlic to the marinade which added extra flavor. Next time I will cut down on the soy sauce a little bit and not let it marinade more than a 10 minutes or so before grilling. Overall I thought it was excellent and will definitely be making it again. Read More

This recipe is good but when made with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette marinade is amazing! We eat grilled asparagus all summer long!! Read More

we did this on aluminum foil instead of directly on the grates. It turned out well I guess. I didn't like the grilled flavor but everyone else thought it was a hit. I'd probably do it again but perhaps add some fresh garlic or ginger or something. Read More
