Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place sesame seeds in a dry, non stick skillet and toast seeds for 3-4 minutes, or until brown. Keep a steady eye so they don't burn. Set aside.
  3. Cut bottoms off of asparagus and wash.
  4. In large ziplock bag, combine 1/2 the olive oil, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder. Shake it and mix it.
  5. Add asparagus to the bag and toss to coat.
  6. Spread asparagus out evenly and spaced out on a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  7. Sprinkle sesame seeds over asparagus evenly. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the top.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-13 minutes and test with a fork for the tenderness you desire.
