It is almost a shame you can only buy them for a couple of weeks per year. So when they are in season get them as often as you can. This recipe can be eaten with or without tacos but I’m sure you will be surprised how could they taste with a taco.

Use the green asparagus as they will be firm and crunchy and are a great combination with soft tacos.

What do you need for shrimp asparagus tacos

To make garlic shrimp asparagus tacos you need an extensive shopping list but when you taste the end result it is so worth it. Here is what ingredients you need:

  • Green asparagus
  • Onion
  • Red bell pepper
  • Garlic
  • Shrimp
  • Mushrooms
  • Red chili flakes
  • Black pepper

I used the scallion pancakes as they are a great substitute for soft tacos but you can make or buy any kind of tortilla or taco that you like.

How to make shrimp asparagus tacos

To make this recipe start with a cast iron skillet for this recipe. You can make it in a normal baking pan but a cast iron skillet gives it a nice roasting flavor.

Heat your skillet until medium warm and add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Put the shrimp in the skillet. I used big cooked shrimp but you can also use raw frozen deveined shrimp or small shrimp. Any type of shrimp will do. The big shrimp or prawns will give it a nice sweet flavor.

Pan fry the shrimp for a couple of minutes and stir through constantly. Add some red chili flakes and fresh black pepper. As soon as the shrimp are warm take them out of the pan and set aside. Do not leave them in the pan to long as they will go rubbery.

Then if need add some more vegetable oil and start with the minced red bell pepper. Stir and add the onion and minced garlic. Stir some more and let the ingredients go soft before you add the sliced mushrooms. Let them go soft was well.

Now it is time to add the asparagus. These only need a couple of minutes so keep on stirring and add a couple of tablespoons of water. Then you can return the shrimp to the skillet and combine so the shrimp are evenly distributed through the asparagus. Let it sauté until the shrimp are warm.

Warm the soft tacos in the microwave or in the oven. If you want to warm the tacos start this recipe by pre heating the oven at 350℉/175℃ and wrap your soft tortillas in aluminium foil and heat for 8-10 minutes.

Recipe options

But what if you do not like shrimp? Easy, you can change things up and use:

  • Salmon – either smoked or regular salmon can be used in this recipe. Slice the salmon in smal strips and pan fry just like you did with the shrimp. Do not over bake.
  • White fish – use cod, tilapia or panga filet to replace the shrimps. Also slice in small chunks or strips and pan fry for a couple of minutes. The recipe stays the same as with shrimp.
  • Chicken – if you do not like fish or shrimp substitute with strips of chicken. Pan fry the chicken separately from the vegetables and set aside. Combine with the asparagus at the end of the cooking time.
