Another 1 pan easy to fix meal. I made the spicy shrimp two ways: 1. with wasabi paste and 2. with dried chili peppers. Both versions came out terrific so I am writing this recipe as an either or in regards to which spice you choose to use.
If you love asparagus or want to make asparagus a favorite vegetable of others try this easy recipe. It is a great side dish to go with any protein or on top of pasta for vegetarian meal.
