Preparation Mode:

Begin by cooking the rice. In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the basmati rice, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.

Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and stir in the lemon juice and lemon zest. Set aside. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add the shrimp, season with salt and black pepper, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the shrimp is pink and opaque. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.

Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the asparagus and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until tender but still crisp. Return the shrimp to the skillet and toss to coat in the garlic butter sauce.

Serve the shrimp and asparagus over the lemon rice. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy this Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus and Lemon Rice, a delightful and easy-to-make dish that brings a taste of elegance to your dining table.
