This recipe combines the rich taste of sesame with lemon, accentuating the delicious flavor of asparagus. It is quick to make, making it good for any day of the week. A friend of mine from South Dakota said asparagus grows wild in the ditches there....almost makes me want to move from sunny Florida to cold South Dakota! This recipe originally came from a cookbook called "Savory Secrets: A Collection of St. Louis Recipes".
