Spicy Garlic Shrimp & Asparagus

  • 1.5 lbs medium raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 whole bunch asparagus ( rinsed and trimmed)
  • 1.5 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha (or Franks hot sauce)
  • 1 pinch chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 whole lemon (juiced)
  • Fresh chopped parsley or cilantro (for garnish)
  1. Place a large non-stick skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon ghee over medium heat. Add the asparagus and season to taste. Saute until the asparagus is crisp-tender, 4-6 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, add remaining 2 tablespoons ghee and add shrimp. Season with salt and pepper, cook 1-2 minutes on one side.
  3. Add the minced garlic, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine and flip the shrimp to cook on the opposite side.
  4. Cook for 1 minute then add 1/4 cup vegetable stock and Sriracha. Allow the sauce to reduce for 1 minute, making sure not to overcook the shrimp.
  5. Push shrimp on the side and add asparagus back to the pan. Stir asparagus to coat them into the sauce and squeeze half of a lemon over the top of the shrimp and asparagus. Allow asparagus to reheat for 1-2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, garnish with cilantro, lemon slices, and red crushed chili pepper if you like. Serve the shrimp and asparagus immediately.
