      I served this with an Easter turkey meal to my family and it was AWESOME!! Even my kids loved it. I have never served asparagus before and didn't know the best way to cook it, so this website was very helpful. So easy to make in the microwave and the shrimp wasn't tough at all. I omitted the peppers (just can't stand them) but used a whole lemon rind and just served it as a vegetable dish- no rice. FABULOUS!!

      WOW this was the best Lemon sauce I have ever had!!! We LOVED this dish!! I made this for 4 people so I made quite a few changes. I used 2 pounds of shrimp, 1 pound fresh asperagus, 3 cloves garlic, 4 Tbs soy sauce, 2 Tbs lemon rind, 3 Tbs lemon juice, 3 tsp cornstarch. I will use this sauce alot in the future for shrimp and chicken. Thanks for posting!!!!

      Was good. I used extra tripled the lemon, since I love the flavor and served with sticky rice.
