Directions

1. To prepare the garlic butter shrimp recipe with asparagus: place a large non-stick skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the asparagus and season to taste. Saute the asparagus until crisp-tender, 4-6 minutes. Remove sauteed asparagus from the pan and set aside.

2. In the same pan, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and add shrimp. Season with salt and pepper, fry shrimp 1-2 minutes on one side.

3. Add the minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and onion powder to the shrimp. Stir to combine and flip the shrimp to cook on the opposite side. Cook shrimp 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.

4. Push the cooked 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 cooked shrimp and asparagus. Allow reheating for 1-2 minutes. Remove cooked shrimp and asparagus from heat, garnish with parsley, lemon slices, and red crushed chili pepper if you like. Serve your garlic butter shrimp with asparagus immediately–Enjoy! ❤️

How To Make Garlic Butter Shrimp Tips:

This easy garlic butter shrimp with asparagus is succulent and makes the perfect quick, healthy dinner when you don’t have much time to cook! Here are a few tips for the best shrimp recipe ever:

  • To make the garlic butter shrimp recipe: buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled, and cleaned, and you have yourself such an easy shrimp recipe to prepare.
  • You can use shrimp with tails on or off. We like to keep the tail on for aesthetic purpose ;)
  • Try as much as possible to buy wild-caught shrimp. Look for medium to large-sized shrimps, because they tend to stay juicier.
  • Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe, but fresh wild-caught shrimp tends to have a better flavor.
  • You can save time when cooking asparagus by blanching them first in boiling water for 2 minutes then soak in ice water to stop cooking. Then you can saute asparagus as per the recipe. You’ll get your asparagus crisp-tender quicker.

How and how long to store the shrimp leftovers?

These shrimps with asparagus will keep for up to 2 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Reheat gently covered in a skillet, with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.

What to serve with the shrimp and asparagus?

If you’re extra hungry, you can serve this shrimp recipe with cauliflower rice to stay on the lower carbs side. Otherwise, a side of grits or brown rice would be awesome.

    Awesome! I butterflied the shrimp and followed the directions. I used a little extra Frank's Hot Sauce and served with rice pilaf. It's a keeper!

    Amazingly delicious. The tip for blanching the asparagus was great as this was only my second time cooking asparagus and the first time didn’t taste so good. I will definitely cook this meal again.

    Just made it for dinner. I omitted sriracha and chili pepper flakes as my stomach cannot handle any hot food. Doubled on garlic though. This dish came out perfectly! Thank you for this recipe. Definitely a keeper!
