Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp with Cilantro Lime Asparagus & Rice
1 9 oz package SeaPak® Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp
1/2 - 3/4 lb fresh asparagus, cut into 1-2" pieces
3 tbsp butter (or substitute)
2 tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp lime zest (optional)
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
3 cups cooked rice (your favorite)
Prepare shrimp according to package directions and keep warm.
Blanch the asparagus (place in in a large pot of boiling water for approximately 1 to 2 minutes, until the asparagus turns bright green. Then drain and run very cold water over the asparagus to stop it from cooking). Set aside.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan.
Add the lime juice, salt, and lime zest. Stir until combined.
Add the asparagus and stir until well-coated. Cook until hot, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Combine the cilantro and rice in a large bowl.
Mix in the asparagus and lime juice mixture.
