Season fish with salt and pepper, and dredge in flour. Preheat a pan over medium heat and add olive oil. Cook the fish for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Add the asparagus, garlic, white wine and fresh juice from the lemon. Cook until asparagus is tender. Add the diced tomatoes and crabmeat, then sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. Add basil and butter, then remove from heat. Serve over risotto or vegetables.
