eats // shrimp & asparagus stir fry over cauliflower rice

This is such a tasty gluten free, stir fry, the flavors of the lemon and ginger are so fabulous!  I served it over cauliflower rice, (omit lime and cilantro) it would also work over fried rice or simply as is without any rice. I will be cooking this dish up a lot as we transition into the fall months.
 

 

 
 
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed and each stalk cut into 2-3" pieces
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the lemon sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to pan in a single layer and cook for about 3 minutes, turning them over to cook both sides. Season shrimp with ¼ teaspoon salt. Shrimp should be beginning to pink on both sides and be opaque, but just slightly undercooked. Remove from frying pan and place shrimp on a plate.

Season asparagus with ¼ teaspoon salt. Add ginger and garlic and stir to combine with asparagus. Cook for another 30-45 seconds.
  4. Pour in lemon sauce mixture into frying pan with asparagus.
  5. Add shrimp back into pan and combine sauce with asparagus and shrimp. Simmer for about a minute or until sauce is thickened.
