Ingredients

  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese for topping (about 1 ounce)
  • zest of one lemon
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Remove woody ends of asparagus by bending each stalk until the end snaps off.
  3. Arrange asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil (1-2 tablespoons), season with salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes.Roast for 10-15 minutes.Meanwhile, toss the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon zest, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Allow to marinade while asparagus is roasting.After asparagus is cooked but not quite done (10-15 minutes usually), carefully add the shrimp to the pan, arranging around the asparagus.Roast for about 5 more minutes, until shrimp are pink and cooked through.Remove from oven and top with freshly grated parmesan.
