  • In a bowl, add the shrimp, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and onion powder. Mix everything well.
  • In a cast iron skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil or grass-fed ghee butter over medium heat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Return the shrimp to the skillet, and mix everything well to combine.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!



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!!
