shrimp and asparagus

1lb of jumbo shrimp (16-20 per lb)

1-1/2lbs of asparagus, chopped

3 tbsp of butter

2 tbsp of garlic

1 lemon, chopped into quarters

Red pepper flakes

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

Parmesan or romano cheese, optional


In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and 1-1/2 tbsp of butter, and heat until butter melts. Add in garlic and shrimp. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste, and cook until shrimp are pink. Take the shrimp out the pan, and set aside. Add remaining butter and asparagus. Add extra olive oil, if necessary. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. When almost cooked to your liking, add lemon pieces. Stir together for about a minute, then add shrimp back to the pan. Stir, and cook together for one to two minutes. Take off heat, and serve. Sprinkle with parmesan or romano cheese when serving, if you want. Enjoy!
