While the asparagus and mushrooms are roasting, make the shrimp.

In a medium sized skillet, add two tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil over low to medium heat. Once the vegetable oil has heated, add minced garlic and cook until they become golden brown and aromatic.

Next, add jumbo shrimp with soy sauce, crushed red pepper, and honey. Cook the shrimp until they are a reddish orange color and no longer appear translucent. Remove the shrimp from the stove.
