Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 Pound(s) Asparagus
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Tablespoon(s) Orange juice
1 Teaspoon(s) Orange rind, finely grated
1/4 Cup(s) Olive oil
1 Teaspoon(s) Sesame oil

Find a saucepan that's wide enough to hold the asparagus spears
lengthwise and set it over medium-high heat. Fill about three quarters
with water, add the salt and bring to a boil. Plunge the spears into
the boiling water, return to a boil and cook until the spears are just
tender when pierced with a fork, about 2 to minutes depending on their
thicknes (do not overcook). Rinse under cold running water to stop the
cooking, then drain on a clean kitchen towel. To prepare the sauce,
whisk together the orange juice, orange rind, olive oil sesame oil,
and coarse salt and pepper until well blended. Arrange the asparagus
on a large serving platter with dipping sauce on the side. Serve warm
or cold. Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #180 Date: Fri, 2 Aug 1996
