Really great simple dish. I left out the brown sugar and it was still great!

The brown sugar and oils didn’t mix.The sugar burnt so I used maple syrup. I also added several spices on top.

This recipe is awesome and even my kids will eat asparagus like this. I do have one child allergic to sesame oil so I swapped it out for pure maple syrup! She loved it!

Fantastic! This is a great presentation for a “typical” vegetable. My guests were delighted with it as was I. The only change I made was to slightly precook the bacon ahead of time. It was still pliable, so wrapped well around the asparagus, but it took away my worry that it wouldn’t crisp up enough before the vegetables were done.

Not as tasty as I thought.

I didn't have sesame oil or seeds so I used more olive oil and sunflower seeds. It was a great hit with the boyfriend - we had to go out and get more asparagus to have it again!
