A super easy recipe for roasted shrimp with asparagus, one pan and less than 30 minutes…now that’s what I’m talking about!!!
It’s summer and who wants to cook? Who wants to turn on the oven? Not me…and yet I did but I was craving shrimp so I created a recipe that roasted shrimp in the oven but it only needed 8-10 minutes of cooking time, I put vegetable on the tray that I knew would cook quickly and I ended up with a complete meal. Now aren’t you interested?
A super easy recipe where one baking sheet, one pound of shrimp and one pound of asparagus makes a complete meal.
A few things to mention about the shrimp:
- If you are looking for more flavor leave the peels on (it will be messier to eat later though so take that into consideration)
- In this recipe I used the 21-25 count, what that means is that for 1 pound of shrimp, I received about 21-25 shrimp.
- Based on my count I cooked the shrimp for 8-10 minutes, if you purchase larger or smaller shrimp you will have a different cook time so adjust your times accordingly
Start with peeling your shrimp but leaving on the tails
cut the bottoms of your asparagus and place the cleaned shrimp and asapargus on the baking sheet, side by side, season both ingredients
throw in a few lemon slices for added flavor
place in your oven for 8-10 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through and you are all done!
This is the easiest recipe for the summer and while it does require the use of an oven, the timing is limited. You also get a complete meal with this recipe so you can make it in under 30 minutes and with only one pan, it doesn’t get much better than that!
