Another delicious recipe from Mary Nell Reck's "Cooking Lesson" series in the Houston Post. This one came out on October 10, 1987. The various ingredients may be chopped and prepared early in the day but the cooking must take place just before serving if you are going to serve this hot. It is also quite good served at room temperature or cold. It doesn't reheat very well, as the shrimp have a tendency to get tough and the asparagus will loose its crispness and bright color.
