15-Minute Spicy Shrimp Asparagus

15-Minute Spicy Shrimp Asparagus

Ingredients for 3 servings

* Optional Substitution Note
  • “Rice”
    • 3/4 lb raw cauliflower rice
    • 1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
    • 1/3 cup shredded or diced carrots
    • 3 tablespoons water
  • Sauce
    • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
    • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger
    • 1 teaspoon lime zest
    • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (more/less to taste)
    • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced (3 or 4 garlic cloves)
  • Garnish
    • sesame seeds
  • 1lb asparagus bundle, chopped (thick asparagus is recommended)
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 1lb raw jumbo shrimp
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch (or cornstarch)


Step 1

Add the ingredients for the “rice” to a bowl.  Mix together, then cover and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes to soften/steam.  Set aside.

Step 2

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.

Step 3

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat, add olive oil and garlic.  Cook for 1 minute before adding chopped asparagus.  Also,cook until the outside begins to sear, about 4 minutes.

Step 4

Toss in mushrooms and cook for an additional minute, then add the raw shrimp.  Then, mix everything together in the pan for 3 minutes, or until the shrimp begins to plump and turn pink.

Step 5

Add the arrowroot starch to the sauce and stir.   Make a hole in the skillet, and pour in the sauce.  Immediately begin to toss and stir so the sauce does not clump and remove from the skillet from the heat after about 45 seconds to 1 minute.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
