Excellent and easy. I made a few changes. I microwaved the brocolli for 1 minute and then let stand covered LOOSELY (so as to let the steam and heat slowly leave) instead of the suggested "Cook broccoli in boiling water 1 minute. Drain and plunge into ice water; drain". Also I added garlic powder to both steps 3 and 4 involving lemon juice/olive oil. I also used 1/2 lemon when doing step 4 since I love lemon on brocolli. This was GREAT and I intend to try the same recipe only substitute chicken one time and try talapia the next. Thanks!!!

Very easy to throw together. Like the others I thew the brocolli in the microwave for a minute rather than boiling and shocking to save on the clean-up. Next time I think I will add garlic to the shrimp or maybe the red pepper flakes before throwing them in the overn because I thought something was missing. A filling meal but the shrimp were just a little underwhelming on the taste.

Quick. Easy. Healthy. Made with shrimp and scallops. Scallops absorbed more flavor than the shrimp, so if I were to make this again it would be with scallops instead of shrimp.

Very easy and very good. I did the broccoli in the mircowave and add chopped garlic to the shrimp before baking. My husband and daughter both said that this was a keeper.

Definitely worth 4 stars for ease of preparation and taste. I served it with the squash-rice casserole from this site.

This was a very nice dish,My family loved it. Will make this again. I'll have to do it with scallops also.

Was a filling meal. The flavor of the broccoli was tangy.

Made to recipe, including the recommended garlic-basil corn. Supereasy, great presentation, great colors on the plate. The three components each had distinct flavor differences. Nice.

I changed my recipe when I made this. I didnt add the grated lemon and I used lemon juice. I also added butter while it was cooking in the oven and drizzled the oil over the shrimp and broccli while it was cooking.

Everyone loved this dish. My 13 & 15 year old kids even ate the broccoli which they usually will only eat if it's covered in melted cheese! I roast or grill vegetables a lot but never thought to roast broccoli. This recipe is a keeper!

We loved this!!! I added a couple of cloves of garlic to the mix before cooking, upped the red pepper flake a bit and used more lemon zest and juice than calls for. Served over couscous made with the shrimp stock, lemon juice and zest, and garlic.

Easy weeknight entree. I've made this exactly as written and have also made it with chunks of very fresh rock cod in place of the shrimp and a variety of veggies.
