To make the avocado dipping sauce, place the avocado, lemon juice and zest, sour cream, cayenne pepper and fresh herbs in a food processor or high speed blender. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Keep covered and chilled until ready to use.
Mix oil and herbs to make herb oil. Trim asparagus spears of excess leaves, and trim ends. Blanch the spears in boiling hot water for one minute then refresh in ice cold water. Drain and allow to cool. Drizzle the asparagus with herb oil and toss.
Cut asparagus spears in half lengthways and place 3-4 pieces on top of a piece of pastrami. Roll the salmon around each bundle of asparagus.
