When you need to relax there is nothing better then a great dinner with great company!  :)

Finding the company you have to take care of yourself, but dinner proposition: Voila!

Today spicy: Chili guacamole and baked asparagus in olive oil, garlic and chili sauce. Complemented with shrimps in sweet onion sauce and served with a garlic baguette.

 Guacamole and asparagus

Recently, I have a crave for guacamole and avocado in general. It’s a constant crave that seems not to want to go away even if I fulfill it’s wishes. I like the rich, a bit butter-like taste of avocado, and when it’s seasoned with salt, pepper and lemon juice – well, it’s safe to say that I will not leave any of it on my plate, ever…

Shrimps from the recipe below are first laid in a beer bath and then fried with a slowly caramelized onion. They will be sweet, delicate and firm. Serve together with a garlic baguette to dip in the sauce!

Last, but not least – baked asparagus… Sprinkled with red chili and dipped in garlic seasoning – no more words needed!

For shrimps:

Place the shrimps in a bowl and add the beer. Mix, so that all have been covered, and leave for 15 min.
Preheat 2 tablespoons of butter on a frying pan. When melted, add oil and chopped onion. Glaze on low temperature for about 10 min. Add smashed garlic and fry for about 2 min.
Increase the temperature and add shrimps drained from beer. Fry for about 5-7 min. Add the last spoon of butter, wait for it to melt and serve.
