  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, asparagus, lemon zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to soften, about 6 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl; cover to keep warm.
  2. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth and add to the pan along with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve the shrimp and sauce over the vegetables.

I really enjoyed this dish. I added chicken and mushrooms to add more substance since I have three grown men to feed. Also added roasted herb spice.

Great recipe! I added crushed red pepper for a little bite and omitted the zest.

My husband and I loved this. It was easy to prepare and cook. Unfortunately I didn't have any parsley on hand so I substituted fresh basil, but it worked fine. Will make again!
