Roasted Shrimp and Asparagus Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette #SundaySupper

by jerseygirl on March 19, 2017 · 8 comments

I was really happy when I found out that the Sunday Supper tastemakers would be displaying easy spring recipes this week. I need the reminder that warmer weather and fresh produce will be here soon.

We had a great winter but now that it’s almost spring, mother nature has been playing some tricks on us. Snow and ice in March? Whaaaat??

Bring on some asparagus, shrimp and lemon vinaigrette. I don’t care that it’s snowing outside. I’m making a salad with fresh basil included and chanting “spring, spring, spring”.

Take that mother nature!

My daughter was home from college this week. For the third time in several years, she declared vegetarianism. So I had to make sure the refrigerator was stocked with fresh veggies, rice, beans, tofu and a little seafood. Does that mean she is a pescetarian? I am not really sure about the correct term but she is the type of vegetarian that will also eat a little seafood. Who knows? In a few months when we are walking through the streets of Philadelphia and smell cheesesteaks, the stint might be over. It’s happened before. So maybe she can be a cheesesteaktarian? Would that be a vegetarian that will also eat cheesesteaks? As long as she eats fairly healthy and is well nourished, I’m happy.

I made this salad and it was perfect because my daughter and I both loved it. It was also easy to put together. The shrimp and asparagus baked right on a sheet pan and were roasted in 15 minutes. The other ingredients were added and it can be served warm or cold. The brightness of a lemon vinaigrette just reminds me that summer is on it’s way.

Take a look at all these other spring recipes below. I can’t wait to try some of the others ones.

Special thanks to Anne from Simple and Savory who hosted this event!

This looks both healthy and packed with flavor!! I remember the days of me and my sister torturing our parents with our dietary choices (I wouldn’t eat fish and she wouldn’t eat beef)… Nowadays, we happily eat everything!

I love this recipe. Roasted asparagus is so tasty and adding the shrimp to the pan keeps the preparation simple. Topping it all with the lemon vinaigrette brightens the entire plate.

My sister-in-law also only eats seafood vegetables and grains. She would love this salad!
