  • 1 bunch asparagus (12-16 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • wasabi powder or paste (to taste)
  • coarse kosher salt (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Wash asparagus, snap off tough bottoms of spears, and arrange it on a baking sheet.
  • Mix water, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Add wasabi, starting with 1/4 teaspoon and increasing until the mixture is as spicy as you want it. Brush the wasabi mixture over the asparagus, being sure to coat all sides.
