Servings: -three as a side dish.
You could use this flavor combination with green beans as well. Either way, cut the vegetable into small, angled pieces. Hoisin sauce, rice wine, and toasted sesame oil are all now available at most grocery stores. If you have access to an Asian grocery, however, buy your hoisin sauce there: It will be richer, thicker, and more intensely flavored.
Drop bias-cut pieces of asparagus in boiling water and start timing right away; cook just until crisp-tender, about a minute.
It takes only a minute or two to add flavor in the sauté pan. Ginger, garlic, hoisin, and sesame glaze the parboiled asparagus.

I made this without the ginger as I wanted it as a side to a chicken dish that already had ginger in it. It was well liked
Wonderful taste. I will definately be making this again and again.
