As a sweet contrast to the earthy asparagus, use sweet peas, whether shelled English peas, snow peas or sugar snap peas.

  1. Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together the vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise and seasoning with salt and pepper; slowly stream in the olive oil while continuing to whisk.
  2. Stir in the chives and parsley; set aside.
  3. Arrange asparagus on a serving platter; spoon 1/3 of the vinaigrette over top.
  4. In a bowl, combine the peas and shrimp.
  5. Whisk the remaining vinaigrette again and toss with the peas and shrimp.
  6. Spoon mixture over the asparagus and garnish with chopped egg yolks and additional chives, if desired.

The presentation is beautiful. However, for some reason the flavor combination in the dressing was not to our liking. Maybe too much tartness from the vinegar?? Thanks, though; always appreciate a new recipe to try.
