Stir-Fry Asparagus with Shallots and Garlic

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Asian
Author: Cynthia


  • For each bunch of asparagus I used:
  • 2 shallots sliced thin
  • 3 cloves of garlic sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • Black or white sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Remove tough bottom stems and cut asparagus into 1" pieces.
  • Over high heat, quickly stir fry asparagus, for a minute or two, then add garlic and shallots, continue stir-frying another couple of minutes until asparagus is crisp-tender.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and sesame seeds if using.
