Ingredients
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled, deveined, tail off
  • 2 cups asparagus, chopped (220 grams)
  • 2 baby zucchini, chopped (225 grams)
  • 2/3 cup Lundberg Wild Rice Blend cooked according to package directions
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
Sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine (I like Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tbsp arrowroot flour or cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Add zucchini and asparagus to a microwave safe dish.  Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 3 minutes.  Set aside in refrigerator.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.  Add shrimp in a single layer and cook on one side, without moving shrimp, for about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Flip shrimp and add sauce.  Finish cooking shrimp most of the way (they should be mostly opaque), then add ghee and parsley.

  4. Remove shrimp from heat and toss in asparagus and zucchini.  Serve with cooked wild rice blend.
