Servings: 4 servings
Calories: 757kcal


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound raw shrimp peeled and deveined (tails off, optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • teaspoon dried rosemary crushed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus trimmed and cut into 1½" pieces
  • garlic toast optional
  • minced chives for garnish optional
  • 3 cups brown rice cooked to package directions

Tools and equipment


    • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
    • Add the shrimp and the next 9 ingredients.
    • Cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp are pink and opaque, and the asparagus are tender-crisp (approximately 5-7 minutes).
    • To serve, spoon over brown rice, and garnish with garlic toast and chopped chives (optional).


    Broccoli would be a nice substitute for the asparagus when asparagus isn't in season.
    Make sure not to overcook the shrimp or they will become rubbery.
