heat. Add ginger, shallot and garlic; cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes. Add juice,
chicken broth and thyme; cook over high heat until liquid is reduced to 1/4

over medium-high heat. Place 2 fillets in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes
on each side, making sure they are crisp and lightly browned. Wipe out any
burnt crumbs and heat new oil before cooking remaining fillets.
4. To finish the sauce, whisk in butter one piece at a time. Make sure to add
the butter slowly so the sauce does not separate. Season to taste with salt
5. Arrange 2 fillets and some asparagus on each plate and top with sauce.
