One of my original recipes: grilled asparagus and white onions flavored with sesame oil. A great vegetarian side dish that also works well with green beans.
Asparagus, Grilled Sesame, and White Onions Recipe
Wash and trim the asparagus.
Peel and french cut the onion.
Marinate asparagus and onions in a zipper bag with sesame oil and salt for at least an hour, turning several times.
Preheat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Start grilling asparagus first.
After 5 minutes, add onions to the pan.
Once everything is crisp-tender, remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame seeds or toasted pine nuts for garnish, if desired.
This recipe works equally well with white asparagus or green beans instead of green asparagus.
