Curry goes very well with shrimp. check out an Indian recipe site for a nice curried rice dish.

I'd just do scampi on linguine with your asparagus on the side. Protein, starch, veg...grate some Parmesan on top... The basic recipe of garlic, parsley, lemon, butter and vermouth (optional) can be supplemented with herbs and spices to create any number of variations: Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Cajun, Moroccan, etc. Really quick meal, too. Just don't overcook the shrimp, and if it's frozen (most are anyway) then brining does give it better flavor and "crisps" the texture. The shells are great for a broth. Waste not want not.

I would suggest corn on the cob, salad, and garlic bread.
