Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

Sauté the two main ingredients separately to avoid overcrowding the pan. A fresh lemon-herb topping rounds out the flavors in this entrée. You could also try this recipe with chicken and broccoli.

Step 1

To prepare gremolata, combine first 5 ingredients; set aside.

Very good! Added slivered yellow bell peppers, crushed red pepper and a splash of lemon. No need to take asparagus out of pan--I just cooked it all together. Served with sourdough baguette and tricolor orzo mixed with a little bit of shredded spinach and greek herb seasoning.

I was very pleased with this recipe. It was fairly easy and quick to prepare so I feel it's an everyday type of meal. I served it with steamed rice. The only thing I did differently was I added the gremolata to the food while still in the pan. I let it heat for about a minute or two before serving. I did that because I was a little hesitant to sprinkle the gremolata on top of the dish due to the raw garlic. It turned out delicious! I would definitely make this dish again...

This was good. I followed the recipe exactly and served over orzo with a tablespoon of parsley mixed in. It was a good spring meal, but I probably won't make it again--there are other shrimp recipes my family enjoys more, but overall this is a good, solid recipe.

This dish is so quick and easy, it's my go to recipe. I like to change it up and serve with rice, over pasta, or just with a simple salad.

This was an easy and healthy option for a quick dinner. It was light and yummy. I added more lemon grind to add more zest.
