Recipe: Asian Asparagus

This is week 3 of my asparagus consumption and I still am not sick of it. They are so cheap and so good right now. And I have yet to run out of ideas on how to eat them...
My latest concoction is this easy, easy recipe. And it is a FLAVOUR BURST!

My friend Sam showed her appreciation for it below...

2 pounds asparagus
Juice from one lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
3-4 drops of Sriracha chili sauce (this stuff is HOT!)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Black sesame seeds (optional)

Servings: 6 as a side dish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a medium bowl whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, chili and cilantro. .
Snap off ends of asparagus where they naturally break. Toss with olive oil and lime juice. Place in oven for approximately 10 minutes or until tender with a slight resistance/crunch.
Remove from oven and cut into 2 inch slices and toss with marinade. Serve immediately with or without black sesame seeds on top.
