    1. In a large bowl add the shrimp, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Mix contents until shrimp are coated well.
    2. In a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil and cook seasoned shrimp on each side for 2-3 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Remove from skillet to a plate and set aside.

    5. Push the asparagus on the side and add blackened shrimp back to the pan. Squeeze lemon juice on top of the blackened shrimp and asparagus. Reheat for 1-2 minutes then remove from heat.
    6. Garnish with red crushed chili pepper flakes  to taste.
    7. Serve immediately & enjoy! ?

Tip: – I used Kroger frozen shrimp. Just defrost them first!
– Save time by blanching asparagus first in boiling water for 2 minutes then soak in ice water to stop cooking. Then you can cook asparagus as per the recipe.
