Grilled Sesame Asparagus is my recipe of the day. It is adapted from the recipe called Barbecued Asparagus posted  at Recipezazz by Dreamer in Ontario.

It is very simple and a great way to add grilled asparagus  to any meal.

As recipes go, it is easy to customize the recipe by adding things like garlic or red pepper flakes to add even more flavor.

I also enjoy cooking asparagus this way then wrapping  in  rice pepper wrappers with lettuce and herbs for an easy gourmet treat.
