In a small bowl, whisk together all of the lemon sauce ingredients and set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add shrimp to pan in a single layer and cook for about 3 minutes, turning them over to cook both sides.

In same frying pan, heat another 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat.

Add asparagus and cook until asparagus is tender-crisp, bright green, and just barely beginning to brown.

Add ginger and garlic and stir to combine with asparagus.

Cook for another 30-45 seconds or so.

Pour lemon sauce mixture into frying pan with asparagus.
