1 1/2 lb. fresh Asparagus
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. minced fresh chile pepper
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 red onion, sliced very thin
1 orange, peeled, seeded, sectioned and sections halved
Rinse asparagus and cut off the tough ends.
Combine soy sauce, orange juice, garlic and chile pepper. Mix well.
Brush the soy mixture over the asparagus stalks, sprinkle them salt and pepper, then grill over a medium-hot fire. Roll occasionally to ensure even cooking. Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes or until the stalks are just lightly browned and tender. Brush with any leftover sauce during the last 30 seconds of grilling.
Arrange the asparagus on a platter and garnish with onion slices and orange sections.
You needn't tell me that a man who doesn't love oysters and asparagus and good wines has got a soul." - Saki
