Roasted Shrimp & Asparagus Salad Recipe
If you are looking to lighten up your meal planning, shrimp is a great protein to add to your weekly rotation. Light in calories and big in flavor and protein, it’s a great option. This Shrimp & Asparagus Salad is amazing with a little lemon, fresh dill and thinly sliced red onion.
It’s the perfect meal that you can prepare on a single sheet pan and have dinner on the table in under 20 minutes! I like to add fresh lemon zest and fresh chopped dill just before serving for an extra layer of flavor.
How to Make Roasted Shrimp & Asparagus Salad
To prepare this salad, you’ll first create a simple vinaigrette with lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Chop your asparagus and toss it with the shrimp and the vinaigrette on a sheet pan and bake for 8 minutes. Dinner done! The recipe calls for refrigerating it right after roasting and this will stop the cooking process of the shrimp and asparagus, ensuring crisp asparagus. I’ve eaten warm and cold – so try it both ways and choose your favorite!
