I'm trying to configure WireShark to pickup the inbound traffic on my Cisco ASA Concentrator. When i launch Wireshark it automatically picks up my local adapters. How can I configure WireShark to pickup the traffic on my ASA's adapter?

Wireshark can not capture directly from a Cisco ASA. You can either capture packets on the ASA and then export them to a file for Wireshark to read. Or you will need to capture the packets inline, have a look at the link in the other answer to see how that can be done.
