Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

I have been trying to eat less chicken and more seafood so I have more variety in my diet. Luckily, I am obsessed with Pinterest, and I found dozens of recipes that I can’t wait to try. So far, my favorite has been this Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry. It was quite filling for being so light, and actually pretty easy.


  • 1 pound of shrimp meat (I didn’t want to get whole shrimp because it takes too long to de-tail them all)
  • 1 bundle of asparagus
  • 2/3 cup of water chestnuts
  • About 3 tablespoons olive oil (for sautéing and to prevent sticking to the pan)
  • About 3 tablespoons of gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. The shrimp meat should come from the deli already cooked. If not, sauté the shrimp in about 1.5 tbs of olive oil until completely cooked.
  2. Chop the asparagus into roughly 1 inch chunks
  3. Sauté the minced garlic and asparagus in olive oil until the asparagus is soft
  4. Add water chestnuts and sauté until they are brownish on both sides
  5. Add the shrimp, soy sauce, and ginger
  6. Taste test! Add more soy sauce and/or ginger if it needs flavor
  7. Salt and pepper to taste

Super easy right? This recipe was enough to feed two plus a little left over for a side dish with my lunch the next day. Happy cooking!
