    Chef #239578's Note:

    This is a green-curry based dish and is quite easy to make and equally tasty! I found the recipe in July 2008 edition of Good Housekeeping magazine. I made a full batch and it served me 3 very filling meals, 1 fresh and two leftovers that had kept in the fridge over several days. I really like this recipe because I'm a novice in the kitchen, but I love fresh, rich flavors. This recipe gives you both! Easy, yummy, fun! Note 1: I got frozen shrimp from the grocery store and thawed them overnight in the fridge and then shelled and rinsed them - it made no difference as far as I could tell. Note 2: If you're not particularly concerned about appearance, you need only 1 lime - just be careful that you grate it such that you can still slice it and use the wedges later - less wasteful that way. Note 3: I made my own rice that I had at home instead of buying the recommended pre-cooked kind; the amount and kind of rice you serve with the shrimp asparagus mixture is purely preference.
