‘Goma-ae’ is a Japanese dish of vegetables dressed with ‘Goma-ae’ sauce, which is made of Toasted Sesame Seeds, Sugar and Soy Sauce. Today I added Japanese Mayonnaise to it and I reduced the amount of Sugar. Creamy ‘Goma-ae’ sauce and Asparagus are a good match.
1 bunch (150g) Asparagus
Salt for cooking
Creamy ‘Goma-ae’ Sauce
1 tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seeds *ground
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Japanese Mayonnaise
- Trim Asparagus, cut into 3cm pieces, and blanch in salted water. Dip them into cold water and drain.
- Grind Toasted Sesame Seeds, add Sugar, Soy Sauce and Mayonnaise, and mix to make the sauce. Add the cooked Asparagus and combine well.
