Sesame-Ginger Marinated Asparagus

Sesame-Ginger Marinated Asparagus
1 lb. fresh asparagus
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. canola or olive oil
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. orange juice
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp. red chili flakes
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
Bring lightly salted water to boil in a medium skillet, add asparagus and cook for 5 minutes or just until tender-crisp. Immerse asparagus in ice-water to stop the cooking action. Pat dry and arrange on a platter. Toast sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant and golden. Watch carefully-they tend to burn quickly.
Shake together the dressing ingredients in a jar or whisk in a bowl; pour over the asparagus and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it. Serves 4.
