  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp DLM Pure Olive Oil
  • 2 bunches medium thickness asparagus, trimmed, lower thirds peeled and cut into 2-inch lengths
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • Salt and red chili flakes, to taste
  • 4 large slices DLM Rustic Country Bread, grilled or toasted
  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 lemon, halved


In a large skillet, melt the butter and 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat.
Add the asparagus and toss to coat. Cover and cook until the asparagus are bright green but still al dente, about 5 minutes.
Uncover and scatter in the almonds. Cook and toss until they are lightly toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and chili flakes.
Lay the bread slices on a platter and spoon the asparagus and almonds over them.
Return the skillet to the heat and raise burner to medium high.
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil and the shrimp, and season to taste with the salt and another pinch or two of the chili flakes.
Cook and toss until shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
Squeeze the lemon over the shrimp and toss again.
Spoon the shrimp and juice over the asparagus and toast and serve.

Delicious the first time. Second time tasted like something was missing. Maybe the shrimp didn’t have enough flavor or I didn’t add enough salt? I made it without the bread and almonds.
