The Dinner of Denial

I’ve been home from the beach for a week. And all last week I didn’t cook one night. Not one. 


So tonight to break my bad habit of piecing together weird combinations for supper, I made something simple and delicious. 

And it’s beach inspired. 

You don’t need much to make this. And I love that. The less effort the better. And it doesn’t lack in flavor. 

Old Bay Sautéed Shrimp and Roasted Asparagus

  • Shrimp
  • Kerrygold butter
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Asparagus 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Prep the asparagus but chopping off the woody stem. Lightly coat in olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. (I’d usually use fresh minced garlic, but I’m out right now.) Cook for 12-15 minutes, depending on size. 

While the oven’s heating, peel the shrimp and coat with salt, pepper and Old Bay seasoning. 

Heat a pan and melt a nice amount of butter. Toss in the shrimp. Add more Old Bay seasoning, if you like. I love it so I added more. Cook until pink. 

Plate it up and enjoy.
