Let’s start by preparing our Mango dressing.
- Start by dicing the mango you will need 2 cups, we will be using a blender for the dressing.

After this prepare a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger, a small handful of Cilantro, a quarter teaspoon of salt, half teaspoon of peppercorn. Blend all ingredients using a blender.

Cooking the Asparagus
- We will be using an oven to cook our asparagus.
- Let’s prepare the asparagus using the oven pan. First off, slice the ginger into a thin strips. We only need a little about 5-7 strips. This will give the asparagus an aromatic smell!
- Place the strips of ginger on the oven pan then add in some olive oil (enough to cover the whole pan or the asparagus), and crush a peppercorn using your hand then spread it to the pan.
- Once everything is in there,prepare the asparagus by cutting the white part off and place it on top of everything, mix it up with the ingredients and make sure that all of the asparagus is covered with it.
- Put the pan in the oven. Set it at 450 Celsius for 2-3 minutes.
Adding it all together.
