1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoon tomato paste
1 ½ teaspoon shallot, minced
½ teaspoon dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
8 ounce crabmeat, cooked
4 large Boston lettuce leaves, or butter lettuce leaves

Whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice, tomato paste, shallot, Dijon mustard and pepper in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. (Can be prepared 3 days ahead.) Cook asparagus in large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to bowl of ice water and cool. Drain and pat dry. Mix crabmeat into mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt. Arrange 1 lettuce leaf on each plate. Top with asparagus. Spoon crabmeat mayonnaise over and serve.
