Heat 2 inches of water in a large skillet over medium-high heat to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Drain the asparagus well in a colander. Place the asparagus onto a serving tray.
Beat the orange juice, lemon juice, mustard, sugar, black pepper and oil in a small bowl with a fork or whisk. Drizzle the dressing over the asparagus. Sprinkle with the egg yolk, if desired.
