- When the shrimp becomes opaque and pink, sprinkle some melted butter on top of the shrimp and to the asparagus, drizzle grated parmesan.

- If you choose to use canned asparagus, remember not to cook it for long. This means, when you add the canned asparagus, wait for just a couple of minutes before adding butter and parmesan. Parmesan can also be replaced with cheddar. If you feel the fat in this recipe is too much for your liking, you can reduce the quantity of butter or just leave it out completely.
