2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil – divided
1 pound large raw shrimp – peeled and deveined

2 pounds asparagus – ends trimmed and each stalk chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
6 cloves garlic – minced


Step 1:     Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan. Add shrimp in a single layer to the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Add garlic. Cook the shrimp for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side before removing from the skillet and transferring to a clean plate. Shrimp should be pink on both sides, but slightly undercooked.



Step 2:    In the same skillet add 1 more tablespoon of olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add the asparagus and gently toss to coat in oil. Sauté the asparagus until tender, but still crispy. It should be a bright green and browned in some places.   Add the shrimp back to the skillet and cook for an additional 1 minute, or until shrimp is fully cooked.  Add soy sauce and salt to taste.


Best served immediately.
