Place the cream and the 2 cloves or garlic into a small pot and reduce by ½. Season with salt and pepper. Prepare the crumbs by blitzing the crumbs and herbs together in a food processor until you get a fine very green crumb mix. Clean and trim the asparagus and blanch.
Place the asparagus into a ceramic dish and pour over the cream. Liberally scatter the herb crumbs over the top of the asparagus and then place into a hot oven (200c) for 5 minutes until the crumbs are crispy and the cream bubbling (put under a grill if you want the crumbs crispier) and serve straight away.
