Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C) and prepare a large baking sheet.
  2. Place 4 large pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil (about 18 inches long each) on the counter.
  3. Evenly distribute asparagus on each foil pack.
  4. In a bowl, toss shrimp, garlic, salt, pepper, and optional red pepper flakes. Divide the mixture between the foil pieces.
  5. Drizzle each pack with 1½ teaspoons of chicken stock and lemon juice. Top with butter cubes.
  6. Seal the foil packets by folding the long sides together, turning twice. Fold up the ends, leaving room for air circulation.

  8. Carefully open the packets, garnish with lemon and parsley, and serve hot.
