    Simply Spiced Shrimp

    • Makes: 4 servings
    • Serving Size: about 3 oz.
    • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking Time: 3 minutes


    1 lb. peeled and deveined large shrimp
    1 garlic clove, finely minced
    1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
    1/2 tsp. chili powder
    1 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
    2 tsp. fresh lemon juice


    1. In a bowl, mix together the shrimp, garlic, paprika, and chili powder, tossing to coat. Add 1 tsp. of the olive oil and the lemon juice. Let stand 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the asparagus and place it on a foil-lined baking sheet in the oven to roast for about 10 minutes. Add the pasta to the boiling water. Prepare Simply Spiced Shrimp. Drain the pasta. Plate the pasta, shrimp, and asparagus. Slice the apple and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve and enjoy!
