In the Japanese kitchen, gomae refers to a dish, commonly a vegetable, dressed with a savory-sweet toasted sesame sauce. Here we give tender-crisp, skillet-cooked asparagus the gomae treatment. Look for medium-size asparagus, ones that are about the size of a pencil, and make sure to trim off the tough, woody parts at the base of the spears. This can be served warm, at room temperature or even lightly chilled.

Tip

Don’t forget to dry the asparagus before adding it to the skillet. Any remaining water droplets will create steam and prevent browning.
