  • 12 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced

Instructions

FIRST, SEASON THE SHRIMP.

  1. In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, garlic, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine well so the seasoning is evenly distributed.
  2. Set aside for a minute while you cook your asparagus.

COOK YOUR ASPARAGUS.

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil, butter, or ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add shallot and asparagus and sauté until lightly browned and tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Remove veggies from the pan and set aside on a clean plate or platter for a moment.

COOK THE SHRIMP & FINISH THE DISH.

  1. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil/butter/ghee to the pan and add your seasoned shrimp.
  2. Cook the shrimp just 1-2 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  3. Return asparagus to the pan and stir to heat through (watch the shrimp so it doesn’t overcook).
  4. Garnish with lemon zest & a squeeze of lemon juice. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve warm.
