I’m on the road to finding healthier food recipes for my weekday meal preps. I tend to crave a lot of food with breads like cheeseburgers, pastas and donuts, which you know I love. Since I’m trying to eat healthier I needed a new recipe this week to change it up.
I was dying to try recipes with shrimp in it. So in my search I ran across, ‘ONE PAN, Roasted Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus‘ by Jen from Carlsbad Cravings. It was exactly what I was looking for and did you note the ‘One Pan’ reference in the title? I’m all in for a 1 pan recipe, which helps with the clean up in the kitchen. I followed Jen’s recipe to the T, with the exception of going a little light on the lemon.
I’m so excited for this recipe. I literally would not make shrimp at home because of how time consuming it is to make it for 1 person; it was just not worth it. If you’re in this same situation, you won’t regret making this one.
After making it, I literally inhaled the shrimp and asparagus! The asparagus was amazing and I used the remaining shrimp in tacos. I always find a way to incorporate tortillas! Let me just say they were delish and I didn’t feel full after eating them, so kudos to me, for not running to grab fast food and loving the recipe.

I’ve found a new shrimp recipe that I love and now I’m keeping this staple in my future weekly rotations.
If you love shrimp you must give this recipe a try, you won’t regret it.
Stay tuned as I review more recipes to rotate into those weekly meals.
