Pinning asparagus spears together with skewers makes them easier to flip and grill evenly on both sides.

1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Dash of salt

Preparation
  1. Prepare grill to high heat.
