Directions

  1. Place the water and asparagus in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook covered 5 minutes. Remove cover and cook 1 or 2 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside, but keep warm.
  2. Melt the margarine in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the turkey cutlets 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until browned and no longer pink on the inside. Remove turkey from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add the garlic and shrimp to the already heated skillet. Cook over medium-high heat 1 or 2 minutes, stirring constantly until the shrimp is heated through.
  4. Prepare hollandaise sauce according to package directions.
  5. Place each turkey cutlet on a plate. Top with the asparagus and shrimp. Spoon hollandaise sauce over all.

This was just incredible for a number of reasons. First, it's super easy and takes mere minutes to prepare. Second, it makes for a beautiful and impressive presentation. Third, this is great for those watching their carbs. And last, it's delicious! I used turkey cutlets, but I think pounded flat chicken breasts would be better (hubby disagrees vigorously on this point, preferring the turkey). I browned them, for just a couple of minutes, in a mixture of olive oil and butter and, of course, the minced garlic. I used fresh asparagus rather than frozen. Most important, for the sauce, I used part milk, part water, and added some fresh lemon juice, which I think gave it a huge boost in flavor, as well as a little tang. I had debated adding some fresh tarragon to make it a Bearnaise sauce (since I have it growing in my garden anyway) and really wish I would have. The good thing is that I can always try that next time, since I WILL be making this again. Too easy and too good not to! I garnished this with a sprinkle of finely chopped parsley and the result was a dish worthy of serving to company.

I thought this was okay, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good enough to make very often. My 8 year old daughter loved it, but I think she'd eat anything smothered in hollandaise sauce. I used fresh asparagus because I never use frozen. I also didn't add the shrimp in because I didn't have any. It was pretty easy to make.

What a great idea! I made this as directed except I used 1 lb fresh asparagus for 4 people instead of the frozen. The finished producut looks especially impressinve! We were not that impressed with the texture of the turkey cutlets, so next time I'll use boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded thin. Thanks for and easy impressive recipe!

This was really easy & everyone loved it! I used chicken breast pounded flat, imitation crab meat instead of shrimp, and made the hollandaise from the "Blender hollandaise sauce" recipe on this site.

We all enjoyed this dinner. I also steamed fresh asparagus like other reviewers. The sauce could have used some lemon juice, and I will try it again with that addition. I also tried 1/4 t. dried tarragon, which someone else suggested & enjoyed the flavor boost. This was an easy & enjoyable meal... thanks!

We had this for last night's dinner and it not only was picture perfect but also delicious. As suggested by a prior reviewer, I used skinless boneless chicken breasts which had to be pounded a bit and fresh asparagus cooked in the microwave. The chicken had to be cooked more than 3 minutes on each side. I used Knoor's Hollandaise sauce made as directed on the packet but next time will add a little lemon juice. Easy to make and totally delish.
