Saturday was a gorgeous day out, reaching a high of 15 C. After moving a friend into her condo, I went for a short mountain bike ride; sanded an old desk in the backyard and then opened a Corona on the deck. It was definitely a barbeque night. Although asparagus is not local yet, I did reluctantly purchase some to grill. I made asparagus rafts, brushed them with sesame oil and placed them on the grill for 4 minutes a side. Near the end of the grilling I sprinkled on some sesame seeds that the heat of the BBQ toasts.
First, wash the asparagus well. And using wooden skewers (soaked in water for 20 mins) pearce the asparagus and skewer them at both ends to make a raft.
Place on a preheated grill (med high heat) for 4 mins a side.
Near the end of the grilling, sprinkle with sesame seeds, the heat of the grill will toast them, giving a nice nutty flavor.
Serve (in this case with BBQ Chicken)
