Asparagus, Shrimp, Garlic, Lemon

Growing up, we didn’t have asparagus very often. It was always saved for special meals. So, now when I serve asparagus to my family, it always makes the meal feel more special. There are many ways to cook asparagus, but roasting it in the oven is easy and delicious. Shrimp is my favorite seafood. Not only is it versatile and fun to eat, shrimp also cooks up really fast. Which makes busy nights a little easier.

Trimming Asparagus

Trim the Asparagus

Sheet pan meals are one of my favorites when I need a good meal fast. Cooking everything together on one pan makes for easy prep and clean up. Roasted shrimp an asparagus make an impressive meal. And, it’s super simple to put together. First, trim the asparagus. Bend an asparagus spear near the end until it breaks at the natural breaking point, leaving you with only the tender part. Arrange all the trimmed asparagus on the sheet pan and discard the woody ends.

Add the Shrimp

Next, add the thawed shrimp to the pan. To reduce prep time, buy frozen shrimp that’s already peeled. Or you can peel them yourself before adding them to the pan. Garlic and lemon are both natural complements to shrimp and asparagus. So, garlic lemon compound butter is an easy way to flavor the sheet pan shrimp and asparagus.

Garlic Lemon Compound Butter

Garlic Lemon Compound Butter

What is compound butter? It’s really just flavorful ingredients mixed into butter. To make the compound butter, start by juicing and zesting one lemon. In a bowl, add the lemon juice and zest to some room temperature butter. Next, add crushed fresh garlic to the bowl. Use a fork to mash everything together. If the lemon juice is not fully incorporated, that’s ok. Compound butter is great for flavoring other things too, like Garlic Lemon Spatchcock Chicken.

Bake the sheet pan shrimp and asparagus at 425º for 15 minutes until the shrimp are opaque and the asparagus are tender crisp. Once they are done roasting, remove the pan from the oven.
