Hoisin sauce and sesame seeds make this a great twist from boring plain asparagus. Your kids will love it too!
Original recipe makes 5 servings
1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 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.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
- 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.
- Transfer asparagus to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
