Lemon Garlic Shrimp and Vegetables Recipe

Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced (large)
  • 2 pounds asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound raw shrimp (26-30 shrimp per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Directions
Heat 2 tsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, asparagus, lemon zest, and 1/4 tsp. salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just beginning to soften, about 6 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl; cover to keep warm.

Add the remaining 2 tsp. oil and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth, and add to the skillet along with the remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve the shrimp and sauce over the vegetables.

Makes 4 servings.
