This is based on the well-known Thai squid salad, yam pla muek. The miniature asparagus which I use can be bought in most supermarkets in the West nowadays; it really does come from Thailand, and is much smaller and more slender than most of the full-size asparagus grown in Europe and North America. Wild asparagus is a good alternative, if you can get it.
