Fresh asparagus is usually available here, but this was sadly 1 of the times it was not. A girl has to do what a girl has to do, so I made a full recipe using Icelandic baby shrimp & canned asparagus. The absence of fresh asparagus substantially changed the prep as I skipped the entire roasting process & went right to the sauce. Allowing for the high salt content in canned asparagus, I did reduce the 2 oz of soy sauce by 1 tbsp & that worked well. For me at least, garlic seemed to be a must & I added that. This is a very good, quick-fix 1-dish meal, Brenda, & we liked it a lot. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.

This was quick and simple to make. The shrimp and asparagus with rice was good together. I used all of the soy/vinegar dressing on two servings, and I think it was too much for the amount of rice, it made the dish too strong and salty. Next time I make this, I would use 1/2 of the dressing.
