Cook and clean shrimp. Again reserve the best six and dice the remainder in a bowl, combine shrimp and asparagus, mix gently with mayonnaise and lemon juice.

In a separate bowl, marinate the artichoke hearts in 1 cup french dressing.

Place shrimp and asparagus in an attractive shallow bowl. Garnish with sieved egg and arrange reserved asparagus on top to resemble the spokes of a wheel.

Drain the artichoke bottoms and garnish each with a collop of mayonnaise, 1 whole shrimp and 1 parsley sprig. Arrange them around the salad.
