  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook on high heat until it reaches a crisp-tender texture, approximately 2 minutes.
  • Drain the asparagus and rinse with cold water to cool it down. Set it aside for later use.
  • In a separate medium saucepan, mix the stock with ⅓ cup of water.
  • Heat the stock mixture over medium-high heat until it simmers.
  • Lower the heat to maintain a gentle warmth.
  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat it over medium heat.
  • Add the shallot and thyme to the skillet, stirring frequently for about 3 minutes, or until softened.
  • Incorporate the rice into the skillet and stir for 1 minute.
  • Pour the wine into the skillet.
  • Raise the heat to medium-high and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed, stirring for about 2 minutes.
  • Ladle 1 cup of the warmed stock into the skillet, stirring frequently until most of the liquid is absorbed, taking around 3 minutes.
  • Continue adding ½ cup of warm stock at a time, stirring in between, until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the rice is almost al dente. Reserve the final ⅓ cup of stock for later.
  • Mix in the salt and black pepper.
  • Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently until the shrimp are cooked through and the rice is al dente.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Stir in the remaining ⅓ cup of stock and the cheese.
  • Gently fold the cooked asparagus into the mixture.
  • Serve the dish immediately.
