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 the Drunken Fish.
Bundle of asparagus (about 8-12 spears is a serving)
1-2 tablespoons miso, wasabi and ginger salad dressing
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.
This might be my new favorite side dish. The wasabi adds that tiny bit of heat that was missing from the original dish.
