Asparagus with Sesame Seeds

Spring calls for asparagus when it is in season and plentiful and
reasonably priced.

2 lbs. Asparagus Spears
2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 Tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds

Trim the asparagus about one inch from the bottom.  Peel the stems to about 2 inches from
the top.  Cut the asparagus on a diagonal into one inch pieces.  Heat the butter in the skillet
and cook the asparagus, tossing and shaking the skillet for about 2 minutes.   Sprinkle with the
sugar and toss another 30 seconds.  Sprinkle with soy sauce and cook another 30 seconds.
Sprinkle the asparagus with sesame seeds and serve.
