After looking up a couple of recipes for roasted and baked shrimp, I came up with this simple combination. I like to buy the bags of broccoli from Trader Joe’s that are ready to go. This time I used the combo of cauliflower and broccoli — my two roasted faves!

I served this with Big A and Little D’s favorite pasta, letting them serve themselves with everything place in separate bowls. They still don’t eat much shrimp but seem to warming up to it. I put some fruit on the table too.

Of course you can serve with brown rice or any other grain. Add more or less oil, different spices, it’s up to you!

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:
-12 ounces broccoli, chopped
-2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
-3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
-1 pound raw shrimp
-2 Tbsp lemon juice (the juice of one lemon)
-2-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a 9 X 13 inch glass pan with cooking spray. Mix broccoli with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and place in the pan, sprinkling with a bit of salt and pepper. Cook it for 10 minutes.

While the broccoli is cooking, mix together 1 Tbsp. olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl, and set aside. Add the shrimp to the mixture and mix together. After the broccoli has been in the oven for 10 minutes, take it out and add the 2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese to the broccoli only followed by the shrimp mixture. Cook additional 10 minutes. Let it cool, add 1 more tbsp. of parmesan cheese over the whole dish, and serve atop whole grain of choice and a side of fruit.
