Easiest Grilled Asparagus

I’m a recent convert to the deliciousness that is asparagus. I recently had the grilled asparagus at the Drunken Fish in St. Louis’ Central West End. They were delicious! I also figured they couldn’t be that hard to recreate. So when I saw a miso, wasabi and ginger salad dressing at the local grocery, I knew I had to try it. Luckily, this dish was slightly better than the one at theĀ  Drunken Fish.

Bundle of asparagus (about 8-12 spears is a serving)
1-2 tablespoons miso, wasabi and ginger salad dressing
sesame seeds

Heat grill. Coat asparagus in dressing and let marinate while the grill is heating up. Toss on grill. Flip after about 2 minutes. Do this about 3 times for crisper spears, longer cooking for less crunchy. Remove from grill and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

My Opinion:
This might be my new favorite side dish. The wasabi adds that tiny bit of heat that was missing from the original dish.
