Stir-Fried Shrimp and Asparagus in Lemon Sauce

I’ve been on a cookbook kick lately. I’m back to bookmarking and food-staining the pages of cookbooks I’ve resurrected. It’s been great because I’ve been in a bit of a food rut (especially for weekday dinners), and the cookbooks help. Plus, it makes me feel okay about the precious real estate (only 2 squares, for the record) my cookbooks are taking up on our already-way-too-full bookshelves.

So, in addition to making pretty much everything from Pasta Revolution and Mexican Everyday, I’ve been using The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook a lot, too. Because balance.

Shrimp, asparagus, and lemon are a match made in heaven, so it’s obvious this was a winning dish. What’s better is that it’s quick to make and healthy. What’s not so good is that shrimp can be expensive and both of my children are shrimp beasts. I’m pretty sure they will be getting a call from the ocean any day now.

When we were packing up my huge cookbook bookshelf, J made note that I don’t use my cookbooks enough. But really, I use your cookbooks since we usually have an “Elly meal” once a week.

I love the sauce. I like this recipe, because I normally have frozen shrimp on hand and frequently buy asparagus. Stir fry is FAST. I work and FAST and GOOD floats my boat. Since I live on salt water and I am floating in a boat, I should take my shrimp net with me. Lol.

I must order that cookbook because I need to regain some balance in my life as well! I feel like I’ve been all dessert, all the time lately! Such a great stir fry. Must try with tofu.

Hi Denise. The store near me carries a brand of zwieback called Brandt, so I’ve used that.
