  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Transfer asparagus spears to the baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, Sriracha, and garlic. Brush the asparagus with the marinade. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until spears are crispy. Depending on how crispy you want them, you can choose to bake for 15 minutes. 


  • Try to get thin asparagus for this recipe. It will crisp up better in the oven.
