Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli

Recipe: Cooking Light, Hannah Klinger 2011


5 cups Broccoli

2 tablespoons grated lemon rind, divided

(*I used lemon zest)

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

1 1/2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp

Cooking spray

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (I opted not to use this ingredient)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cook broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and plunge into ice water. Drain.

Combine 1 1/2 teaspoons rind (or zest), juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to combine.

Arrange broccoli and shrimp in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray (though I just used a sheet pan with parchment paper).

Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes or until shrimp are done.

Combine oil, remaining rind (or zest), salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper in a large bowl. Add broccoli and shrimp and toss to combine.

Serve with brown rice.
