Mr. F1's Yummy Asparagus & Shrimp w/ a Little Kick

At 7:00 pm in our household, I usually give "cupcake" her daily bath while Mr. F1 is cooking dinner.  I am very strict when it comes to schedules.  This is important in running a household w/ a dog and a baby.  Both need a familiar routine.  Following it is critical in order to have a quiet and calm evening.
Last night,  Mr. F1 served up one of my favorite veggies, the asparagus.  My #1 veggie I  love (believe it or not) is the bittermelon.  I love how Mr. F1 cooks the asparagus.  They aren't tough at all since he actually peels them.

Below is Mr. F1's own recipe for Asparagus & Shrimp, which we eat with steam rice:

7 asparagus stalks, peeled and sliced in 1 inch lengths.
9 pieces of shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 shallot, sliced
1 chili, sliced (This is what gives the dish a little kick)
1/4 cup of chicken broth (Mr. F1 uses organic low sodium)
1 teaspoon of salt (to taste)
2 tablespoon olive oil

  • heat all of the olive oil
  • stir fry shallots until golden brown
  • add shrimps
  • when shrimps are half cooked add asparagus & chili
  • after 30 sec -60 sec add chicken broth
  • add salt to taste
  • cook asparagus until soft and tender and broth is reduced in half.
