I love watching the asparagus turn a brilliant shade of green before tossing it in this simple sauce. The soy sauce component intensifies the balsamic to give it a bit of an edge.
Broiled Balsamic Asparagus
- 1 lb asparagus
- 1 T balsamic vinegar
- 1 T soy sauce
- 1 T olive oil
- Pinch of salt and pepper
Preheat broiler. Cut or snap woody ends off of asparagus. I usually bunch up the entire pound together and slice off a little less than an inch in one fell swoop.
Lay asparagus on a pan (lined with aluminum foil to minimize the mess). Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Broil for 5-6 minutes while prepping the sauce.
In a small bowl, combine vinegar, soy sauce, and olive oil. Remove asparagus from the oven and toss or brush with dressing. Serve!
