Today I’m so excited about sharing this new recipe with you because it’s delicious and it has been about 2 weeks that I didn’t write a post. I apologize about that, but I decided to take a two weeks’ vacation to spend time with my family. We went to UK (London, Liverpool and Wales) because my husband had to go there for work. We took advantage of this opportunity and stayed in Europe for three weeks. It was very cool.
We visited lots of new places, cities, castles, met great people and ate good food too. My toddler loved everything. He was very excited especially about the train rides 😉 Soon I will post photos about our trip here on the blog. Stay tuned!
I felt so happy for being able to provide him such an amazing experience at such a young age. I think that to travel and show him all these different cultures is one of the great gifts we can give to him.
We arrived last Friday night and we relaxed over the weekend. I also organized my home, unpacking, did laundry, cooked and cleaned a bit. Normally we go to Montreal for Eater because my husband’s family lives there. But we were very tired from the trip so we decided to stay in Toronto.
On Sunday, we did an Easter Egg Hunt for my son and he had a blast. He was very excited about the eggs because inside of the eggs there were toys for him. I didn’t want to give him chocolate because I think he’s very young for that now. Then, we headed home and spent the rest of the day watching movies. It was great! It’s funny because every time I come from a long vacation I feel more tired than when I left. It should be the opposite but I guess it’s because all the activities we ended up doing during our holidays.
Now I am home I’m back to my routine and I have to say that I’m very happy about it. It’s always nice to be back home in the comfort of our own home and bed. Don’t you think? I am back to the blog and excited to share this Garlic Shrimp Asparagus Skillet recipe with you.
This is one of my favourite skillet recipes and as you can see on my blog I have lots of one-pan meals that are absolutely delicious such as this Chimichurri Chicken Green Beans Skillet, my Mushroom Cauliflower “Rice” Skillet, my Ground Turkey Skillet with Green Beans, this Mediterranean Chicken Skillet, this Shrimp Vegetable Skillet and the most popular recipe on the blog this Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet. They are all one-pan meals that takes less than 25 minutes to be done and serve 4 people. Also all these recipes are great as leftover too. It’s always a plus, right?
5 Reasons Why You Should Make This Garlic Shrimp Asparagus Skillet Recipe:
- It’s gluten-free, low-carb, paleo and Whole30 friendly.

- It’s one-pan meal, but you can also serve it with cauliflower rice, cauliflower mashed, zucchini noodles or even a delicious easy mediterranean salad.

Do I need to have a cast iron to make this recipe?
No, but you definitely should. I’m a HUGE fan of cast iron skillets and they are my favourite type of skillets in the world. Why? They are affordable, they last a lifetime and make the food tastes even better, because it’s pre-seasoned. Also you can sauté, sear, fry, bake and stir fry with it. Although mine doesn’t have the helper handle, this one from Lodge does, which is better for carrying the pan around. You can get yours on Amazon here or at any kitchen/cookware store.
