Easy Shrimp & Asparagus Stir Fry

“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea.” – Forrest Gump
This dairy free shrimp and asparagus stir fry is my favorite lunch recipe and an easy dinner option. It’s so quick, super healthy, and tastes amazing. I always make a huge batch so I can eat it multiple times in a week, but I usually end up just eating all of it. I tend to make it slightly differently each time, depending on what I'm in the mood for. Let me know what you think!
Servings: 2 yield(s)
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb shrimp (tail removed if ya want)
  • Handful sea salt
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb asparagus (chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (diced)
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 lemon (juice)
Instructions
  1. Pour the olive oil into a frying pan and heat to medium heat. Meanwhile, make sure all of your ingredients are chopped.
  2. Toss the shrimp, salt, and red pepper flakes into the oil. Stir often. (The oil jumps - use a long spatula.)
  3. Once the shrimp is cooked a bit, (5 min or so), remove it from the pan. This is a one-pan recipe (yay! less dishes!) so just set it aside on a paper towel or plate.
  4. Add a bit more olive oil to the pan if necessary and toss in the asparagus with the ginger, garlic, and a little pinch of salt.
  5. Add the shrimp back into the pan and stir in the soy sauce with everything all together. I prefer low sodium, but use whatever flips your pancake. Finally, squeeze the lemon juice on top.
  6. Enjoy!
