It’s a little more than partway through January – are you still sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions? If any of your goals were to eat healthier and eat less take-out, then this recipe is perfect for you.
One Pan Shrimp and Asparagus
The entire meal is made on just one pan. It takes a quick minute to prep and then only about 20 minutes to cook. So easy! And, the flavors of lemon, garlic, and butter go so well together, making this super delicious, too. I am all about any meal that tastes great with minimal effort. ?
Clean up is a breeze, also. I line my baking sheet with a Silpat Non-Stick Premium Baking Mat so there’s no need for any parchment paper, or extra cooking sprays or oils.
When deciding how to choose your shrimp, keep in mind that many “fresh” labeled shrimp sitting on the mound of ice in the fish department, was actually once frozen and thawed. Knowing that I suggest you head over to the frozen section and grab a bag from there.
Here’s what to look for:
Medium to large size for this dish
Peeled and deveined
You can thaw shrimp in the refrigerator overnight, or for faster thawing place the frozen shrimp in a colander and set it inside a bowl of ice cold water. Let cold water slowly run over the top of the shrimp for about 15 minutes. Never thaw shrimp with warm water.
Other Helpful Tips:
To trim the asparagus, cut the ends of the asparagus stalks where the woody part ends and the tender part begins.
