Ingredients

  • 4

    tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1

    pound large raw shrimp, peeled & deveined

  • 1

    pound asparagus, ends trimmed and each stalk cut into 2-3" pieces

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt, divided

  • 1

    teaspoon ginger, minced (Gourmet Garden Ginger Paste)

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic, minced

  • 2/3

    cup chicken stock

  • 1

    tablespoon cornstarch

    tablespoon sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1/4

    cup lemon juice

    teaspoon lemon zest

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the lemon sauce ingredients and set aside. In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to pan in a single layer and cook for about 3 minutes, turning them over to cook both sides. Season shrimp with ¼ teaspoon salt. Shrimp should be beginning to pink on both sides and be opaque, but just slightly undercooked. Remove from frying pan and place shrimp on a plate. In same frying pan, heat another 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and cook until asparagus is tender-crisp, bright green, and just barely beginning to brown. Season asparagus with ¼ teaspoon salt (or more if needed). Add ginger and garlic and stir to combine with asparagus. Cook for another 30-45 seconds or so. Pour in lemon sauce mixture into frying pan with asparagus. Add shrimp back into pan and combine sauce with asparagus and shrimp. Simmer for about a minute or until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and serve.
