Shrimp & Asparagus Stir-Fry

You can make this delicious, fresh, and healthy 
dinner in less than 15 minutes.
Let's begin: Peel the shrimp. Snap off the hard 
ends of the asparagus, then slice them into thirds.
 Mince the garlic and ginger. I've been using fresh
 ginger much more lately. It gives a big flavor 
boost and it's so good for you. 
 Heat 2 T of the olive oil on medium-high in a 
large skillet. Add the shrimp, half the salt 
and red pepper. I use ¼ t of the red pepper 
flakes because we like a little kick...
it's just right for us. You can use less. 
 Saute' until they turn pink and are done.
 Remove the shrimp to a plate.
 Add the remaining 2 T olive oil to the pan. 
Add the asparagus, the remaining salt, minced 
ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until
the asparagus are crisp-tender.
 Return the shrimp to the pan.
 Add the soy sauce, stir to combine. 
Add the lemon juice, stir again. Serve hot.
