After a busy weekend, the first thing I want for dinner is something quick and delicious that’s on the healthier side; like my One Pan Broiler Chinese Shrimp and Broccoli.
A good Chinese style meal is usually about the sauce and this recipe is no different. The sauce is made with mostly pantry ingredients, things many of us already have on hand and can whisk together quickly in a measuring cup. The protein in this dish are large shrimp that I tossed with broccoli florets and shredded carrots. When combined, it’s broiled in a hot oven until the shrimp are sweet and pink the vegetables crisp-tender.
I like to squeeze of fresh lime juice over top and sprinkle with chopped cilantro. A big scoop of hot rice pairs nicely with this recipe and creates one delicious meal in minutes.
