Sharing is caring!

I love that this recipe incorporates some of my favorites and is SO healthy!

I love a good healthy delicious lunch and this one for my One Pan Lemon Shrimp and asparagus is AMAZING! I am not joking. The best part? Everything is made in one pan so cleanup is a breeze.

I am all about healthy recipes these days. I am working hard to shed the 50 pounds I have packed on over the last few years and eating better is my goal in 2018.

How to Make One Pan Lemon Shrimp and Asparagus

I don't know about you, but I love, love, love shrimp. I am not a fan of fried shrimp, but if you grill it, roast it, or saute it, I am there.

When you mix butter and lemon with shrimp you get the most delicious flavor ON THE PLANET — am I right?

Ok — for starters for this meal, you are going to take your asparagus and break off the tough ends. Then you are going to drizzle on some olive oil, minced garlic and salt and pepper.

You will be roasting in the oven for about 5-7 minutes.

Then you will be adding your shrimp, spices, more garlic, and buttah — lots and lots of delicious buttah! And lemon — the hero of this one pan show.

Then finish it off in the oven. Once you do that, the shrimp are delicate and tender and pop with flavor in your mouth.

Serve it alongside the roasted asparagus. I topped mine with a little fresh Parmesan and an extra squeeze of lemon.
