1 Jalapeño pepper slice
2 oz Patrón Silver Tequila
1.5 oz Watermelon-Basil Purée*
.75 oz Fresh lime juice

Asparagus Salad with Shrimp Recipe (cont.)

METHOD
1 Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and salt it well. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the asparagus to a bowl to cool. Add the shrimp to the pot of boiling water. If they are pre-cooked, remove after 30 seconds—this is just to warm them. If the shrimp are uncooked, boil them for 2-3 minutes, until cooked through. Remove the shrimp and add them to a large bowl.

2 Slice the asparagus spears thinly on the diagonal until you get close to the tip. Cut the asparagus tips off in one piece. (They look prettier that way.) Put the asparagus in the bowl with the shrimp. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Add more lemon juice if desired, to taste.
INGREDIENTS
Olive oil or bacon fat
1/3 cup chopped onions (green, red, or yellow onions) optional

Directions:
1 Place the kiwifruit, pomegranate seeds, avocado, green onion and olive oil in a medium sized bowl.
2 Starting with just a teaspoon of chopped jalapeño, gently fold in and add more to your desired level of heat. Add cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste.
INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar or 1 1/2 teaspoons of dry white wine 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce Salt and pepper

3 Top with the second slice of toasted bread. Cut the sandwich in half if you want, to make it easier to eat. Enjoy!
