Wash asparagus and trim, discarding woody ends. Peel lower parts of stems using a vegetable peeler.
Combine ginger, chilli and soy sauce in a heatproof bowl.
Bring a pan or wok of water to the boil, then add asparagus and simmer for 1 minute.
Drain asparagus and arrange on a serving plate.
Heat oil in a small heavy-based pan until surface seems to shimmer slightly, then carefully pour into bowl with ginger, chilli and soy sauce. Stir to combine, drizzle over asparagus and serve immediately.
