  2. Trim the ends of the asparagus and place in the glass baking dish. Fill with 1/2" of water. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until lightly steamed.
  3. While the asparagus is cooking, finely chop the shallots.
  4. In a large pan, heat olive oil over low-medium heat and add the shallots. Cook for two minutes until it starts to sweat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Once the asparagus has finished cooking, drain the water and serve topped with the shallot mixture.
