Asparagus with Sesame Seeds: Serves 6

2 ½ lbs. asparagus, trimmed
2 tbsp. extra virgin oil
2 tbsp. shallots, minced
2 tbsp. sesame seeds, lightly toasted
juice of 1 lemon
sea salt

Place oil and asparagus in a glass baking dish and toss so that the asparagus is completely coated with oil. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes, shaking the dish every two minutes or so. Sprinkle on the shallots and sesame seeds and bake, with one or two shakes, for 1 minute or more. Transfer to heated serving bowl and squeeze on lemon juice. Season to taste.
