Sometimes, the best meals are the quickest. But lets face it, flavor matters and that’s why I came up with this clean eating shrimp and asparagus skillet recipe. Tons of flavor!
This dish is the best of both worlds! It cooks up in about 10-15 minutes, it’s easy-breezy to make and it packs a flavor punch the likes of which only shrimp can provide. You shrimp lovers know exactly what I’m talking about. I know you do!
I actually did a live Facebook video while making this recipe. It was a lot of fun and even inspired a few people to come up with their own versions for dinner that night!
I will say that I have never cooked raw shrimp. I always use pre-cooked/frozen shrimp from Trader Joe’s. So if you opt for using raw shrimp, please cook them as needed. I can’t advise on that one.
