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.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tsp. oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and sauté on both sides for a total of 3 minutes, or until the shrimp is just opaque and cooked through.

The Prep Plan: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Bring the water for the pasta to boiling. 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!
