Add the shrimp and garlic, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are not quite cooked through, 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the asparagus and cook over moderately high heat until crisp-tender, 2 minutes; transfer to the plate. Add the wine and cook until nearly evaporated. Whisk in the cream and bring to a boil.
