Hi, I’m chef Mariko, host of “Culinary Adventures with Mariko.” Today, I will be showing you how to make an Asian marinade for asparagus. This is a really simple and easy recipe for your asparagus marinade, that tastes good with all different types of veggies. First, you want to start with some soy sauce – this is about three tablespoons – and then, you just want to put it into, like, a little mixing bowl. Then, add a couple tablespoons of sesame oil, two tablespoons of sesame seeds – you could use either white or black. Four cloves of garlic chopped or minced. A tablespoon of sweetener – you could use some agave nectar, maple syrup, some brown sugar – today, I’m using some maple syrup. Then, you want to add some fresh-ground pepper, and then add a little bit of ground salt. First, you want to get your asparagus, and make sure to snip the ends off of them, because the ends are usually the tough, chewy part. And then, just put them in the dish that you’re going to be using for marinading. If you’re doing asparagus in your wok, you might want to cut them up into small, bite-size pieces. Now that my asparagus are in a dish, I’m just going to pour over the marinade. And, this smells really good – you can smell the sesame and the soy and the garlic. That’s it! Then, you just want to mix the veggies and the Asian marinate together, and you want to let it sit for at least an hour. The longer you let it marinate, the more flavor it will have. Now, your asparagus are ready to go on the grill. This is chef Mariko, showing you how to make an Asian marinade for asparagus. Enjoy.
