Boiled Shrimp & Asparagus


Classy Finger Food: Boiled Shrimp & Asparagus

5 ounces frozen raw shrimp, peels on
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
or
1 teaspoon garlic salt or seasoned salt
frozen asparagus spears
lemon wedge

Fill a saucepan 2/3 with water and sprinkle on the seasoning.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Remove cover and add shrimp and cook until they turn pink, which should take less than five minutes–they cook fast!

Meanwhile, put the frozen asparagus on your plate and microwave for 2-3 minutes, until hot.  Drain the shrimp and add to the plate and enjoy hot with a wedge of lemon to squeeze over, if desired.  Although this meal looks really classy, it is messy to eat since you have to peel the shrimp so I usually just use my fingers to eat the asparagus too!  I love popping the hot seasoned shrimp out of their shells and into my mouth–delicious!
