Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry 

Healthy Fact of the Day

Asparagus is a nutrient-packed vegetable high in fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. It supports digestion, may help reduce the risk of certain diseases, and complements the delicious flavors of this stir-fry.

Ingredients

For the Stir-Fry:

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 bunch asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)

Cooked rice or noodles for serving (optional)

For the Sauce:

3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

Instructions

For the Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey or maple syrup, rice vinegar, and cornstarch until well combined. Set aside.

For the Stir-Fry:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the trimmed asparagus pieces and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften but remain crisp-tender. Remove them from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  5. Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side until they turn pink and opaque.
  6. Return the cooked asparagus to the skillet with the shrimp.
  7. Pour the prepared sauce over the shrimp and asparagus. Toss everything together and cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and coats the shrimp and asparagus.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add red pepper flakes if you desire some heat.
  9. Serve your Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry hot, with cooked rice or noodles if you’d like.

This quick and easy stir-fry is not only packed with flavor but also loaded with healthy goodness from the asparagus and lean protein from the shrimp. Enjoy the delightful combination of garlic and savory sauce in every bite!
