Shrimp and Asparagus in Black Bean Sauce
This is a great camping recipe to cook over a campfire for your next camping trip. See Notes.
- 3 lbs peeled & deveined shrimp about a 1/2 lb per person
- 8 oz bottle Chinese Black Bean Sauce
- 1 bunch Asparagus typically the bundle at the grocery store is enough to feed 4-6
- Cooking Spray
- 2 T Dark sesame oil
- 1 T Sesame seeds
- 1 t crushed red pepper to taste, optional
Spray a saute pan with cooking spray
Cook shrimp on both side for a minute or two - then add black bean sauce
If you are adding red pepper add it now.
Toss asparagus with dark sesame oil and add to pan.
Cook until shrimp is cooked through.
Asparagus should still be crisp.
Serve over noodles or rice tossed with dark sesame oil.
Top with sesame seeds.
If you are cooking over a campfire a cast iron skillet is wonderful for this dish, if not any pan will do. Fresh Asparagus is great but doesn't hold up well to the rigors of travel for more than a day or two - you can use canned or substitute broccoli.
Note on Wild Shrimp vs farm-raised shrimp:
Wild Shrimp is best for this recipe. If you are in Alaska or the Northwest and have access to Prince William Sound Side Stripe Shrimp it adds a nice sweet flavor. Key West pink shrimp is also recommended. I personally don't like the farm-raised freshwater shrimp from the US or Vietnam.
