 Ingredients List

  • 2 bn Asparagus
  • 1/2 c Pine nuts
  • 3 Cloves garlic; minced
  • 1/2 c Dry sherry
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 1 tb Dark sesame oil
  • 2 ts Hoisin sauce
  • 1 ts Cornstarch
  • 1 Tangerine; juice and zest
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tb Cooking oil
  • 1 tb Unsalted butter; softened


Wash asparagus. Snap ends. Cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces or shorter if
asparagus is thick. Warm oven 325F. Roast pine nuts in a single layer on a
cookie sheet about 8 minutes. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sherry, the
soy, sesame, hoisin, cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon zest and the juice. Heat wok,
add oil. Coat.

Add garlic; when it sizzles but has not browned, add asparagus and stir and
toss for 1 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup sherry, then immediately
cover the wok. Cook until asparagus turn bright green, about 2 minutes,
removing the cover and stirring them a few times. If the liquid disappears
before this, add a splash more of sherry or water. When done to color, add
the sauce and pine nuts. Stir and toss until glazed with sauce, about 1
minute. Stir in the butter. Transfer to 4 heated dinner plates.
