Find a saucepan that's wide enough to hold the asparagus spears lengthwise and set it over medium-high heat. Fill about three quarters with water, add the salt and bring to a boil. Plunge the spears into the boiling water, return to a boil and cook until the spears are just tender when pierced with a fork, about 2 to minutes depending on their thicknes (do not overcook). Rinse under cold running water to stop the cooking, then drain on a clean kitchen towel.
To prepare the sauce, whisk together the orange juice, orange rind, olive oil sesame oil, and coarse salt and pepper until well blended. Arrange the asparagus on a large serving platter with dipping sauce on the side. Serve warm or cold.
