What’s For Dinner: Shrimp with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes

Ever feel like you make the same 4 meals every night for dinner? Well that seems to be my problem.  So once a week I will be posting a new recipe I have never made before.

This week for the first time I attempted shrimp with roasted asparagus and tomatoes! It was so easy and only took about 20 minutes from start to finish.  


Half pound peeled and de-veined shrimp

Grape Tomatoes

Fresh Asparagus 

2 Garlic Cloves

Fresh Lemon 

Olive Oil

Salt and Peper 



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and slice tomatoes in half as well as cutting the ends off the asparagus. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over the vegetables along with salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.  While the veggies are cooking, place garlic and olive oil in a sauté pan. Once the garlic has had time to sweat (a term I heard Giada use) place shrimp into pan.  Cook for one minute on each side or until the shrimp are opaque. Add salt, pepper and lemon to taste.  Place spaghetti on a plate, add the roasted asparagus and tomatoes, top with shrimp and pour sauce over the plate.  Simple yet delicious! 

Well that was my first attempt at an original recipe, let me know your thoughts on the new series: What’s For Dinner.
