      Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus. Peel the lower half of each asparagus with a vegetable peeler. Fill a large frying pan with enough water to come 1/2 in (1 1/2 cm) up the sides and bring to a simmer. Add the asparagus. Cover, and cook 3–4 minutes, or until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Refrigerate while making the sauce.
