Preparation

Step 1

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add shrimp, salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon of garlic, honey and lime juice. Mix well. Cook for 2 minutes, or until bottom of shrimp turns pink and opaque.

3. Flip the shrimp and cook an additional 2 minutes or until shrimp are fully pink and there are no gray bits. Remove shrimp from skillet and set aside.

4. In a fresh skillet (or you can clean out the same one), add oil and sauté the asparagus and bell pepper with salt, pepper, and the remaining garlic.

*I recommend cooking the asparagus and peppers in the remaining honey-lime mixture.

5. When the asparagus and bell pepper have reached your desired doneness, add the shrimp back into the skillet and combine.

*Recommend serving over white rice and pouring a small amount of the liquid over the rice.

6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
