The sauce to this recipe is very yummy. I could eat it with a spoon, in fact, I did! As I love asparagus, I loved this dish. I didn't grill it as the recipe suggested (too cold outside), instead I roasted it in the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes until done. Will definitely make it again. Thank you awalde for a keeper of a side dish!
Excellent! I didn't make any grilled asparagus, but I know the red bell pepper sauce would be great with it. Instead, I just made the sauce and used it on some broiled ono (white fish). I charred the peppers over the flame on my gas stove because I wasn't grilling anything. The sauce is beautiful and delicious! Leftovers will be used as salad dressing.
I didn't bother with the skewers-just cooked the asparagus directly on a griddle pan. No way you could ever use half a cup of oil on the asparagus, I brushed a couple of teaspoons over. I made 2/3 of the salsa and only used a small portion of it but plan to use the rest over grilled chicken breasts. The salsa is yummy and the ginger/lemon goes so well with the charred sweetness of the asparagus.
We really loved this treatment for asparagus. While I often grill them I rarely add a sauce. I thought the sauce was a great addition and made the happy mistake of reducing the asparagus for two but left the sauce as directed. I think it will make a super base for a salad dressing too. Thanks so much for posting!

Unfortunately, I can't say that I loved this recipe. I felt that the the ginger was was far to prominent a flavor in the sauce, even though I only added half the amount called for. I felt this would be much better if the ginger was significantly reduced and white wine vinegar was added in its place. Even SO, who really loves nearly anything with ginger felt this was out of balance. I'm sorry, as I love roasted peppers and wanted to like this, but it just didn't work for me.
