Garlic Angel Hair Shrimp

Garlic Angel Hair Shrimp
  • 1/2 (16 ounce) package angel hair pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen peeled-and-deveined shrimp
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
  • 4 wedges lemon (optional)


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the water.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon in a large skillet over high heat. Saute shrimp in hot butter until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon to a bowl, retaining liquid in the skillet.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook onion and garlic in the retained liquid in the skillet until the onions are translucent 5 to 7 minutes. Stir tomatoes into the onion mixture; cook and stir until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir asparagus into the tomato mixture and add the reserved water from cooking the pasta; bring liquid to a simmer and cook until the asparagus is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and angel hair pasta; stir. Cook until the shrimp is completely opaque in the middle, 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with salt and garnish with Parmesan cheese and lemon wedges.
