It does not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, and pepper, as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen already. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

  • 1 lb 450g fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lb 450g. wild-caught Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • ¼ tsp ground chipotle powder
  • 2 large lemons
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  • Add the trimmed asparagus to the baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss until the asparagus is evenly coated. Spread the asparagus into a single layer without overcrowding.
  • Place the baking sheet in the center of the preheated oven and roast for 12-14 minutes.
  • While the asparagus is roasting, add the peeled shrimp, melted butter, garlic, and chipotle powder to a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss to combine. Set aside.
  • Cut one of the lemons into 8 wedges and the other into thin slices. Set aside.
  • Remove the asparagus from the oven and let cool slightly before adding the seasoned shrimp to the baking sheet. Carefully arrange the shrimp and asparagus into a single layer without overcrowding. Season with salt and black pepper, if desired, and squeeze two of the lemon wedges over the top.

  • Arrange the lemon slices on top before returning the baking sheet to the oven. Roast for another 5 minutes, or until the shrimp is opaque and the asparagus is crisp-tender and golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool slightly. To serve, transfer the shrimp and asparagus to a platter and pour the juices from the baking sheet on top. Sprinkle with some fresh parsley and offer the remaining lemon wedges on the side for squeezing. Enjoy!
