This is a very fast and easy dish to make. I am sure this recipe is great with crab or lobster meat. But since I had shrimp in the refrigerator, that is what I used. The asparagus were a beautiful dark/bright green and al dente; perfect! Chinese Long Beans are a good substitute. Finally, the peanuts added a little crunch as well.
