fresh asparagus, trimmed
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onions
This is a DELICIOUS recipe and so easy! I roasted the asparagus in the oven with a little olive oil and used part sesame oil as some others had suggested. I also cut the spears into about 2" pieces to make it easier to serve at a potluck - not as pretty but worked well. I also toasted the pecans a bit.
This was OK but not anything that made me go "wow!" I think my problem was my asparagus wasn't as fresh as I would have liked and that imparted a bitter taste. I am going to try it again using fresh asparagus and sesame oil instead of vegetable oil.
I started making this dish with the intention of preparing it exactly as written. However, after marinating the asparagus overnight, I decided to ad lib the final touches. I tossed the marinated spears onto the grill at the last moment. After plating the beautifully grilled spears, I added the green onion, and sprinkled them with slivered almonds that had been toasted in the oven. THEY WERE DELICIOUS!! I will make this dish again and again!!
Absolutely excellent recipe. I do not normally even particularly like asparagus, but this recipe was a tremendous hit with both me and my family. My parents both loved it...in fact, my dad raved about it for the entire weekend. I only marinated it for a couple of hours, and it still was divine. The next day, I'd left it in the bag with the marinade, and it was even better. Will be making this recipe again and again--a permanent favorite.
This is a fabulous dish to take to picnics or any summer gathering, actually anytime of year it is Great and easy easy! ( I use splenda,low sodium soy and roast the pecans)
My guests and I did not care for this recipe. I felt that the soy sauce flavor overpowered the dish (I followed the recipe exactly). I liked the idea of a cold, marinated, crisp asparagus dish, but this did not do it for me.
This is a wonderful salad/vegetable. I took it to a party last night and it was eaten with many raves. This morning I had to send the recipe to everyone attending. I did substitute l tablespoon sesame oil for 1 of the vegetable oil and added the sesame seeds as someone suggested. It was wonderful and so easy. You just need to plan ahead to marinate it.
i just made the asparagus, i didn't add the onions or the pecans, but we did not like this. maybe it's because of how long it was marinated? maybe i will make again, but only use dressing at the time i serve it & will definitely toast pecans or cashews and add green onions.
