Recipe by CHITIMACHA54
"A twist on a recipe found on this site. Being from Louisiana where shrimp is plentiful and served often I really needed something new. Just found out how AWESOME and healthy asparagus is. Nice to have leftovers. If you want more shrimp, add more; I find the veggies fill the space, making it healthier."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Abstaining from meat on Friday during Lent is supposed to be a bit of a sacrifice but this was a definite treat. I have made similar dishes before but the small addition of heat sets this one apart. I had to make a few small changes to use what I had on hand. I used red onion instead of shallots and dried basil and cut the oil and butter back to 2 tbs each. Thank you for sharing, Chitimacha!
This was great. I added a little more Parm because we are a cheese eating family.
I made this as directed and found it lacking in flavor. I tasted the distinct flavors of the veggies and shrimp, but nothing Louisiana about it. Or I should say nothing that I perceive as Louisianan, because I am an upper midwest boy. You betcha (that's thrown in for the Fargo fans). Anyways, the only change I made (after I made it as written) which made it 5 stars to me was add in some Cajun seasoning. I'm guessing I added in 1/2 or 3/4 of a teaspoon. I will probably make this again with my change. Thanks!
