Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the pan and season with salt, pepper and 1 tsp of red pepper flakes. Cook until the shrimp is pink, about 5 minutes. Remove shrimp from the skillet and set it aside.
Using the same skillet, add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the asparagus, ginger and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Stir frequently and cook until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.
Return the shrimp back to the skillet. Add the soy sauce and lemon juice. Stir until well combined.
Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
