Enjoy the asparagus while you can - we've got maybe two more weeks before it's done for the season.
This recipe would work for roasting, too, but who can think about roasting when its 95 degrees in the shade?
2 Tbsp grated ginger root
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 lb asparagus, tough ends snapped off
Combine the ginger, sesame oil, and soy sauce in a small bowl and mix well.
Place the asparagus in a wide, shallow bowl or baking pan and drizzle with the sesame-ginger mix, then toss until thoroughly coated.
Grill over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes, until the asparagus is tender.
