Recipe Description


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 Jumbo Butterfly 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.
