It wasn't bad, but the orange-wasabi dressing was uninspiring. I was expecting an interesting blend of contrasting flavors and it just wasn't there for me. It was not too different from eating plain roasted asparagus. I don't think I'll try it again.

I served this with Kung Pao Chicken (actually I used tofu) and it was a great combination. I didn't add all the asparagus because I wanted it a little more saucy. I also baked in the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes and it turned out great.

This recipe was incredible, and everyone at our BBQ loved it. I used fresh ginger and doubled the dressing portion to make enough to marinate the asparagus for a few hours before grilling. The end result was so flavorful that I would absolutely do it again next time I made this recipe. I too left out the cabbage and just served it alone.

Mmmm Mmmmm good!!! Didn't have cabbage so I served on a bed of shredded raddicchio. The contrasting colors was beautiful and the flavor amazing. Easy too! Great recipe idea for company. Cooks quickly so can be thrown on the grill when the meat is removed.

This was very good and I will be making it again but I was hoping the sauce would be a little thicker. Next time I think I will try marinading in the sauce for a while before putting the asparagus on the grill.

This was done on Asian night. Awesome and easy. Louise and I have made this time and again.

Pineapple juice substitutes well with the orange juice.
