  2. Toss the rocket leaves, cooked asparagus, 1 tbsp. of olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Divide the salad onto individual plates.
  3. If you prefer to cook shrimps rather than buy them already cooked, you will need the following. Preheat a frying pan with 1 tbsp. of olive and add the shrimps, cook for 1 min then turn the shrimps over and cook for another minute, then season with salt and black pepper and remove from the heat. For the warm salad serve it right away with asparagus, rocket leaves and the salad dressing. If you prefer a cold salad, than empty the shrimps onto a plate to cool down. When ready, put the shripms over the salad and serve it with dressing.
