Asparagus: What to do?

I went shopping the other day and they had a decent deal on asparagus (okay, I lied: I just saw it, said, "Ooo, asparagus," and bought it), but now I don't know what to do with it.

Sure, I could boil it, or steam it (I like my asparagus nice and limp), but I've been experimenting with more adventurous cuisines so I'd like to do something different with it. Any ideas?

My friend made asparagus wraps a couple of times, but I'm looking more towards a side dish (but if you have a good entree recipe don't be shy about posting it).
