Recipe Lemon-Sesame Asparagus
•2 pounds asparagus, ends trimmed, each stalk cut diagonally into thirds

•1 1/2 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
•2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
Cook asparagus in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Rinse asparagus under cold water, draining again.
Heat toasted sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and sauté until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and toss until well coated, about 1 minute. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
