In a small bowl, whisk together all of the cornstarch, lemon juice, soy sauce ingredients and set aside.
In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to pan in a single layer and cook for about 3 minutes, turning them over to cook both sides. Season shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Shrimp should be beginning to pink on both sides and be opaque. Remove from frying pan and place shrimp on a plate.
In the same frying pan, heat another 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and cook until asparagus is tender-crisp bright green, and just barely beginning to brown. Season asparagus with 1/4 teaspoon salt (or more if needed). Add lemon zest, ginger, and garlic and stir to combine with asparagus. Cook for another 30 seconds or so.
Pour in cornstarch lemon juice mixture into frying pan with asparagus.
Add shrimp back into the pan and combine sauce with asparagus and shrimp. Simmer for about a minute or until sauce is thickened. Sprinkle with parsley. Remove from heat and serve.
