Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry in Oyster Sauce


When people see that my husband and I have different cultures, the question that usually arises is what we eat at home. My answer is always the same. Ninety percent Italian and the rest of the time, we have Asian dishes, mostly Filipino. The whole family loves Italian food. Give them pizza and pasta everyday and no one will complain and give them rice and their favorite Asian dishes to go with it and you won't hear any complaints either. Shrimp and asparagus are two of my favorite ingredients to put together whether I am cooking Italian or Asian dishes. I think their individual flavors are so distinctive and when I put them together in one dish, the merging of tastes makes bond even more delectable. 


This is a recipe that takes out the flavors of both with the surprising addition of oyster sauce. It's a basic stir-fry that's really, really good especially when eaten with steamed rice. Asian food is always good when accompanied with rice or noodles, remember that. If you have half an hour, you can make this dish happen. Just most of the time will go to the shelling of the shrimp and after that, the stir-frying is so easy. Before shelling the shrimp, start cooking the rice already so that the whole meal can finish cooking in about half an hour. This is one of the best 30-minute meals that you will have, I promise you. It's flavorful and simple.
