For the Asparagus: In a large bowl, prepare an ice bath. In a large pot of boiling water over medium-high heat, add the salt and return to a rolling boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 3-6 minutes, depending on the thickness, until bright green, tender, and al dente. Immediately place the asparagus into the ice bath to stop the cooking. Drain the water from the pan, and return to the stovetop for the sauce.
