Asian Sesame Asparagus

1 bunch of thin asparagus
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
toasted black sesame seeds
Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s or Tamari

1)  Heat Dutch Oven or deep black iron skillet medium hot.

2)  Slice each asparagus spear in half lengthwise. When pan is very hot, add sesame oil.  When it begins to smoke add asparagus.  Toss them in oil and then spread them out so that as many as possible are touching the bottom of the pan.  Then leave them alone, do not stir…for about 4 or 5 minutes.  They will begin browning on the edges. 

3)  Toss them again, place lid on pan and let them cook about 3 or 4 more minutes; you want them al dente and still bright green.

4)  Splash in Bragg’s or Tamari and stir quickly.  Remove from heat, stir in sesame seeds and serve immediately.
