This Keto Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus is one seriously easy recipe that’ll look like and taste like you spent a lot more time than 15 minutes and 5 ingredients to make. You’ll need:
asparagus tips (or cut the thick ends off of regular asparagus)
That’s it, well plus a little salt and pepper and maybe some red chili flakes if you like a bit of spice.
It’s just as perfect for busy weeknights as it is for a romantic date night. This recipe has really become a staple menu item for Lauren and I lately, we’ve had it at least twice this week already… don’t judge.
When I first started working on this recipe, I was planning it to be shrimp scampi over miracle/konjac noodles, but I opted to add asparagus instead and bump up the nutritional value of this meal. After a little research (I’m about to nerd out a little bit), I found out that shrimp scampi is somewhat of a misnomer. Scampi is actually entire different species of sea creature, and although it’s appearance is similar to that of shrimp it is actually a lobster, a Norway Lobster to be exact.
Anyway, this recipe really is a delicious and equally nutritious dinner option plus you can have leftovers for lunch the next day, and these are leftover you’ll actually be excited to finish off. Unlike that one recipe you made 3 weeks ago that got pushed back further and further in the abyss of the fridge and then you forgot about it until yesterday and when you opened it to throw it out, it slightly resembled your 6th grade science fair project…(I hope that’s something that happens to other people or else I come off as a disgusting slob in that very specific example). Anyone??
