All the ingredients we need to make this delicious recipe.

Light a medium fire in the grill or preheat the broiler.

Add the garlic, ginger, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a medium bowl, whisk until well blended, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Let's start from the dressing.
Add the minced garlic and ginger into a small bowl.
Add 2 teaspoons of rice wine vinegar.
Add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce.

Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil.

Brush with 1 to 1½ tablespoon dressing to coat the asparagus lightly.

Prepare the asparagus.
Brush with 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon reserved dressing...

Grill the asparagus, about 6 minutes, turning halfway through, until tender-crisp and streaked with the light grill marks, or line up the spears in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and broil, setting the sheet about 4 inches from the top and rotating the spears once halfway through, until tender and browned in some spots, about 7 minutes. Let cool for about 2 minutes. Slice the asparagus into about 2-inch pieces.

Here we have the perfectly grilled aspragus.
Slice them into about 2-inch pieces.

Stir together the peanut butter, cilantro, and 1 to 1½ tablespoon water into the remaining dressing.

Add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.
Finally stir all of them together until well blended.
Add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of water to thin the sauce a little bit.
Add the 1 1/2 tablespoons of freshly chopped cilantro.

In a large platter or a large bowl, toss the asparagus with the dressing until well and evenly coated.

Place onto a serving platter, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, sprinkle with sliced scallions. Serve.
