Wash asparagus and break off end by gently bending each stalk. It will break at about the place where the stalk begins to get tough.

Steam your asparagus over boiling water for about 10 minutes, just until tender crisp. Remove to a heated serving dish to keep warm.

In a small skillet, brown the sesame seeds in butter. Add the lemon juice, salt and hot sauce (optional).

Pour the sauce over the asapagus in the serving dish.
Garnish with some lemon slices.
