Sesame-Grilled Asparagus Rafts

My husband made this with our Valentine's dinner and it was so delicious! I love asparagus and this recipe definitely takes it to another level.

Sesame-Grilled Asparagus Rafts
adapted from Primal Grill

1 lb asparagus
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp sesame seeds

Snap off the woody ends of asparagus and discard. Trim the ends so they are all the same length. Skewer 4 or 5 asparagus spears together using bamboo skewers or toothpicks. (like a Huck Finn-type raft)

In a small bowl, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic. Stir with a fork to mix. Brush mixture on asparagus rafts on both sides. Season with a little salt and lots of pepper.

Place rafts on a hot grill until browned on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Sprinkle asparagus with sesame seeds as they grill. Serve as rafts or unskewered.
