Shabina loves Shrimp

True Story: I've always hated seafood..with a passion. The smell of tuna makes me gag. No joke. But shrimp, for some reason, has softened my heart, and makes my palette perk up. I'm officially obsessed with all things shrimp. Luckily, I stumbled upon Gimme Some Oven where Ali had an awesome recipe for shrimp & gnocchi! This recipe rocks for 4 major reasons:
2-Only uses 4 ingredients!
3-Takes 15 minutes...yes seriously
4-The most has shrimp!!! :)

Gnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus & Pesto
Shopping List:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. asparagus, tough ends removed, and cut into 2″ pieces
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (16 oz.) package vacuum-packed gnocchi
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • (optional garnishes: parmesan and toasted pine nuts) 
Let's get cooking!
Throw olive oil in a skillet, turn it up to medium heat, add asparagus & saute for 3 mins. Add shrimp, season with lots & lots of fresh ground pepper and some salt. Saute till the shrimp is good & cooked [a.k.a. pink & not translucent] Take off heat.

Meanwhile, boil 2 qts of water, add gnocchi to pan, letting it cook for 3-4 mins. When it's done the gnochi will rise to the surface (good tip!) Then all you have to do is put the gnocchi is a large bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients till its fully coated!

Check that out... a real, true, honest to God, 4 ingredients 15 minutes meal!! Ain't that something?!
