The process of roasting brings out the natural sweetness and intensifies their natural flavors!

Did you know... One of the great benefits of roasting vegetables is that you conserve both the flavor and important nutrients in the vegetable itself. The "good stuff" stays right where it should... in the vegetable!

Make some extra & throw them into a breakfast frittata or an afternoon salad!

Pairs well with cauliflower rice or grain rice.
Adjust serving size: 


  • 1 bunch asparagus ends trimmed
  • 10 oz peeled raw prawns - or shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper or to taste - omit for AIP
  • 1/2 lemon - meyer if available use 1 teaspoon juice & zest

How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and place rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Rinse the asparagus and remove the ends. For super thick asparagus - peel the bottom third as well.
  3. Rinse the prawns and lay them on a paper towel; cover with another paper towel and pat them dry.
  4. Add the prawns and asparagus to a large roasting pan, toss them with avocado oil and minced garlic, and then sprinkle with lemon zest, salt & pepper.
  5. Arrange them into a single layer and roast for 8-10 minutes - or until the asparagus is tender yet crisp and the prawns turn pink - take care not to overcook the prawns or they'll become tough.
    Tip: Cooking time may vary. If the asparagus are rather large and the prawns rather small, give the asparagus a five-minute head start before adding the prawns.
  6. Serve and garnish with a squeeze of lemon and fresh ground pepper.
