In a large skillet, melt butter on medium heat and cook onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

Deglaze with white wine and reduce by half.
Pour broth into skillet and add herbs. Cover and let simmer 15 minutes.
Add shrimp and asparagus, stir and continue cooking, covered, for another 5–7 minutes. Remove lid, stir and cook another 5 minutes, uncovered, to allow any excess liquid to evaporate.
