Stir-fried Asparagus in XO Sauce

Since my family loves asparagus, I am trying my best to cook them as much as I can, before the current Mexican asparagus (the thicker variety) ends. The prices are really cheapest this week, so I reckon it must the peak of the season.

XO Sauce

XO Sauce is a seafood sauce popular in Cantonese cuisine and it’s rather pricey (about S$20 per bottle) due to the dried scallops which is a premium Chinese dried good. To me, foods coated in XO sauce simply taste good, so it is a god-sent sauce for stir frying for lazy cooks like me.
