Shrimp and Asparagus


This post is quite late today. My computer is still acting funny. Or maybe it is just my Internet.  Regardless the whole blogging aspect of my life is a little challenging right now.


I don't really have a recipe for today. It was a super easy dish that was light and very spring-like.  My photos are all foggy because I wanted to it as soon as it was ready.  I really have no patience whatsoever, especially when it comes to food.


I love using fresh shrimp but whenever the frozen version is on sale I will buy some bags for good keeping.  I defrosted a bag of shrimp and roasted some asparagus.  


I sauteed the shrimp with some garlic, olive oil and lemon juice. Once the shrimp was cooked through and hot I added in the asparagus. I was thinking this would be another pasta dish but then we opted for just a few slices of good bread.  It was so good.  Yum, yum,and yum!

  2. Love shrimp and asparagus. I love that it's just a light meal - served with simple bread! If you ever get in the mood for something that is on the heartier side, you might like my asparagus and shrimp risotto :)

  8. My internet and computer are always acting up! So frustrating! This looks excellent though! I do almost the exact same dish with broccoli and cauliflower, and I also add some white wine. SO simple and a great low-carb dinner!
