Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan. Pour enough water into the saucepan to reach just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring the water to the boil. Add the asparagus, cover and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes depending on thickness.
Place the asparagus into a baking dish. Spread mayonnaise over the asparagus; sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until the crumbs and cheese are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
You may want to turn on the grill for the last few minutes to really up the flavour.
