Very enjoyable dinner - and I had the oyster sauce but not the asparagus - this was great using a leek (instead of onion) and red bell pepper instead of the asparagus. I used less shrimp to make it for two people. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Once everything is prepped this recipe goes together quick. It was served over brown rice for an enjoyable lunch. Made for Aussie Swap.

A really nice meal, I did tweak it a bit as I only wanted to make it for two people, so I cut down the amount of shrimp and asparagus to half the amount, but left the other ingredients as per the recipe as I felt that cuttung the oyster sauce down would not give enough flavor - I just added 1 small birds eye dried chilli as it does boost the flavor - I would definately make it again, thanks for posting this
