"Looking for a speedy weekday lunch that’s both tasty and nutritious? Look no further than this one-pan dish featuring crunchy asparagus and tender shrimp. While some asparagus enthusiasts in Germany may consider this recipe unconventional, it's my favorite way to enjoy green asparagus at its peak (substitute with other crunchy vegetables like sugar snap peas or green beans). To use frozen shrimp as a pantry staple, this dish is both versatile and easy to make. Plus, if you happen to have shrimp with whole heads, frying them in the oil before adding the shrimp will add even more flavor. Don't have Shaoxing wine? No worries—sherry wine makes a solid substitute."
