Roasted Shrimp & Broccoli

Roasted Shrimp & Broccoli

Are you ready for a crazy-easy, totally delectable, healthy weeknight meal? This, my friends, is it. Broccoli and shrimp harmoniously roasted together on a baking sheet. You know what that means? It only dirties one pan! A major win in the world of weeknight meals.

Just toss the broccoli florets with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Pop it in the oven for a little bit to get going. Meanwhile, season a pound of shrimp with olive oil, salt, pepper, red chili peppers (if you’re into that kind of thing), and the zest of one lemon. Add the shrimp to the baking sheet and let that goodness finish cooking together.

If you like, steam some brown rice or quinoa to round out your meal.

If you’re Robert, douse everything in Sriracha.

What more is there to say?

Dinner is served.
