Sauteed Shrimp Asparagus

I bought 2 bunches of asparagus at sale price for $1.45 a pound.When summer time in US you can get vegetables at lower price than winter season.Furthermore ,I try to encourage Elliot and Mishu to eat vegetable.Both father and daughter hate any green.They will eat only certain vegetables but have to be well done or overcooked.
I think my vegetable drawer in fridge was too cold.My asparagus was frozen ice!!.


1 lbs fresh asparagus(cut 2 inch)

3-4 cloves garlic

20 shrimp clean and deveined

1 tsp chicken powder stock

1 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp water


1:Cut and wash asparagus,set aside.Clean and deveined shrimp.Minced garlic .
2:Heat wok or skillet at high heat ,add oil and garlic .Sauteed garlic until brown and add in shrimp for 3 minutes.Add in asparagus ,water,oyster sauce and chicken powder.Simmer for 5 minutes.But if like your asparagus crunchy and green,don't cook too long.Remove from heat,serve warm with rice.

At last Elliot refused to eat this dish,Mishu just eat the shrimp.He said the asparagus is too green!!Ouch!!

I love asparagus, one of my favourite veggies. I don't know if it will help you but I used to have problems with little princess not eating her veg. It was torture but when she was slightly older, I got her to help me clean veg, maybe you can also give Mishu a blunt knife to cut them. It worked for my girl she's been eating veg since, no problem.

oh yes! thank you

When Mishu was a baby ,I blend carrot and peas in her porridge.After she feed herself,just pick up every single green she can find in her meal.Maybe I should use your method to encourage Mishu to eat vege.Thanks :)

I remember when I as a kid,I hate vege,but somehow somewhere I dunno when I start to like vege.Thanks:)

You know, I find that as we age our tastebuds change and things that we did not eat when we were young, we eat them later on in our life. I think that's the way for kids.
