  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add asparagus, cover, and steam until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in ice cold water; drain well.

  2. Combine steamed asparagus, shrimp, cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, and basil in a large bowl.
