this was dinner on tuesday night.
teriyaki chicken with grilled pineapple, brown rice and grilled asparagus with balsamic glaze. this is my favorite way to eat asparagus.
first, you spray the asparagus with cooking spray then grill it over low heat until it's cooked but still crisp (about 6 minutes with one turn in the middle).
then, you make the glaze and drizzle it over the asparagus before serving. easy enough, right?
2 Tbsp butter
2 tsp soy-sauce (i use low sodium tamari)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
cracked pepper (to taste, optional)
melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. simmer until brown (about 5 minutes). stir in soy sauce, sugar and vinegar. bring to a simmer. reduce and simmer until vinegar reduces (about 8 - 10 minutes).
