Cookbook Countdown #20: Asparagus with shrimp and dill (fennel fronds)

I have shrimps, asparagus but no dill so used fennel fronds instead.
Diana's method of cooking the asparagus is by way of a special asparagus cooking pot, I used a smallish pot from my thermal pot, standing the asparagus upright in an inch of water, hence 'steaming' them for about four minutes. Remove from pot, drained and patted dry with kitchen towel. No special pot required!  The shrimps are to be 'gently warmed in the fennel infused butter' in frying pan until opaque ie cooked, seasoned with salt and pepper.  Spoon shrimps and butter sauce over the plated asparagus. Delightful!
