In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until tender, about four minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, transfer to a plate, and let cool. Wipe out the saucepan with a paper towel and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream (Image 1). Add 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt. Whisk in half of the cheese. Stir in the cooled shallots (Image 2). Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese (Image 3).

Set aside 3-4 uncooked asparagus spears for garnish. In the saucepan, melt the remaining butter with the olive oil. Add the asparagus spears and peas; cook until just tender and bright green, 3-5 minutes.
