  4. Add in the remaining 1/2 Tbsp. oil to wok and swirl to coat the sides. Add in the garlic and chilies, and cook, stirring, till fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add in the asparagus and carrot and stir-fry till the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 1 1/2 min. Add in the seasonings and bring to a simmer. Return the lobster to the wok, and add in the mushrooms, and green onion. Cook till the mushrooms are tender, 1 1/2 to 2 min.
