    ms_bold's Note:

    This is one of my favorite spring-time dishes. However, with the availability of frozen asparagus, it can be modified to enjoy year round. Editted to add: After receiving the first review of this recipe, I realized that I hadn't mentioned that we usually top this with fresh grated parmesan cheese. Yum! Hope you enjoy!

      Beautiful, delicate flavour. The parmesan adds a lot. I think the recipe could be further improved by pan-frying rather than boiling the garlic and shrimp. Will make again!

      We really enjoyed this dish. I liked the fact that the asparagus wasn't overcooked, just a little crunchy and delicious. The flavours of the garlic and onions were there, but not overwhelming, which was also nice. I think we just needed a "little something" to bump it up to 5-stars for us... maybe a little parmesan sprinkled on top or a touch of cream in the sauce?
