pinch of sugar

sesame seeds, to garnish

Cut the asparagus into 3 inch lengths.
Heat a wok or skillet with oil until hot (oil will be just starting to smoke).

Add the asparagus and sugar and stir fry for 1 minute.
Add the water and cook for another 3 minutes or until desired softness.
Add the oyster sauce and stir to mix well.
