  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Lightly cook the asparagus into the boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and immediately plunge the asparagus into a bowl of ice water until the asparagus is cool; drain and pat dry.
  2. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a dish and set aside to cool.
  3. Heat the peanut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and asparagus to the skillet, season with salt and cook until the ginger is fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; toss with the sesame oil and sesame seeds to serve.

This was wonderful with a great fresh flavor. I used olive oil in place of the peanut oil just because I didn't have any. Everything else I followed exactly. It turned out great.

so tasty just like it is... but I found adding some mushrooms and shredded chicken turned it from a yummy side dish to a quick easy main dish!

I love the nutty taste of the sesame seeds and the sharp ginger taste combined with the earthy taste of the asparagus! Great color and taste combination!

Excellent change for a veggie side dish we eat regularly. Don't omit toasting the sesame seeds. This is very good and I will make asparagus this way again soon.

I made this today for Easter dinner, and everyone loved it. I didn't have peanut oil, so used olive oil instead. Also, used 3 cloves of garlic, chopped, instead of ginger, since I'm not a big fa...

Fabulous. A new "go to" recipe for asparagus. I usually roast asparagus but this was great -- and could all be done on the stovetop. Great in hot weather. Thanks so much for the recipe.

It was ok... I wasn't too impressed.. but wil try again to make sure we didn't do something wrong.

One of my favorite recipes have prepared it for my family for 35 years
