Lime Shrimp With Asparagus

Lime Shrimp With Asparagus created by Marla Swoffer

This recipe came from a TOH cookbook. The original recipe called for chicken breasts, but I changed it to shrimp. I will probably try making this on the stove instead of in the microwave.

    I waited until my husband gave me the thumbs up and then I told him I made the whole thing in the microwave! I followed the directions exactly except I had to cook the sauce for several minutes for it to thicken. After I combined everything, it was still hot so I didn't reheat it. The sauce had a wonderful flavor and the textures of the shrimp and asparagus were just right. This is definitely a keeper--thanks for sharing it!
