    excellent recipe. The sauce only needs about 30 sec in the microwave

    Yum! This was so quick and easy. If you nuke the sauce for 2 min, it makes a reduction that's packed with flavor. We don't care for ginger, so I omitted it and put in some extra garlic and a little Sriracha. It looked like too little sauce for the amount of asparagus, but the sauce is so flavorful that it was perfect!

    Excellent flavor! Even my kids (who are not asparagus lovers) like this! I was out of sesame seeds so substituted almonds and it was great!

    DO NOT MICROWAVE THIS FOR 2 minutes. It reduced my sauce to almost a solid! Had to add more soy, water and honey to fix it and I think it's still too bitter. Hopefully it will come out. I'm sure the sauce is wonderful just not at two minutes.

    This was really, really yummy! Clearly derived from East Asian cooking. I'm going to try it substituting broccoli and green beans. Brussels sprouts could be good too. This is going to become a regular!

    this was good !! daughter liked too, and that's a plus! i will probably use this on broccoli as well. usually roast asparagus in oven but used microwave.
