  1. In a bowl, add the shrimp, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and onion powder. Mix everything well.

  2. In a cast iron skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil or grass-fed ghee butter over medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic, and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the shrimp, and sauté for about 4 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through. Be careful not to overcook them because they will have a rubbery texture. Set aside.

  4. In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the mushrooms. Sauté for 5 minutes. Then, add the asparagus, and cook until it’s tender. Stir occasionally.

  5. Return the shrimp to the skillet, and mix everything well to combine.

  6. Garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Do you love one-pan meals with shrimp and lots of veggies? Great because I have lots of other recipes just like this one for you. Try this Chimichurri Shrimp Broccoli Skillet, and you'll be amazed by the flavour. I also love this Shrimp, Bell Pepper and Onions Skillet and the Sweet Potato, Kale and Shrimp Skillet because they are all done in 20 minutes or so, super-delicious, and loaded with veggies. You'll love them. I promise!!
