  • 1 1/2 pounds asparagus spears, washed and ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (can also use black sesame seeds)
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut the dry woody ends of the asparagus and discard.
  2. Place asparagus in large bowl and add sesame oil and minced garlic; toss to combine. Arrange spears on large baking sheet and generously sprinkle with sesame seeds. Season with a good amount of sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes or until spears reach desired consistency. They should still be a bit crisp. Remove from oven and transfer to serving plate to serve immediately.
