If a Recipe calls for frozen asparagus but you have fresh asparagus do you cook it first?
That probably depends on what the frozen asparagus would have had done to it.... if it was to be baked then probably not. Asparagus doesn't require much cooking, and it is likely that if the frozen asparagus was to undergo heating for any length of time then that might be enough time for the fresh asparagus to cook. You might blanche the asparagus first - plunge it into boiling water for a minute before using it in the recipe.
