This was just so-so. For the work involved, it wasn't worth the effort! The dish was boring. I have better recipes for shrimp that are easier and tastier. I made some brown rice and quinoa mixture and it saved the dish.
This involved a lot more work than I anticipated on a weeknight - taking into account all the pans/dishes to clean. And the result was fine, but we have a few saved recipes that are similar from CL that we like better: Shrimp and Broccoli Fried Rice with Toasted Almonds 12/08; Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry 12/07; Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry 4/13.
I've made this recipe several times. It is excellent. Make some brown rice for a side dish.
I didn't make it yet but it looks easy and good!
So simple and so good!! This is a favorite in our house.
This recipe is a little messed up, but I gave it five stars anyway because it is a great guide for flavors (the lemon is key!). I used the small bay scallops, but even if I had used the larger ones or shrimp they would have cooked faster than the broccoli. I took them out and added them directly to the vinaigrette for the broccoli ( and no, I don't feel the steps are out of order) and increased the vinaigrette (to taste) to accommodate the broccoli. I didn't have enough broccoli, so quickly added some stir fried veggies on hand. I also added a little butter, garlic and dill. The dill wasn't really necessary, but it all was really awesome. My husband loved it also, and it will be a keeper.
Like other reviewers, I cooked the broccoli in the microwave prior to roasting. I also added fresh pressed garlic to both the shrimp and the broccoli. I think the lemon is supposed to be added to the broccoli after cooking to keep the broccoli from turning brownish, but it seemed like a pain to season it after mixing with the shrimp when roasting, so I seasoned it before. The broccoli did brown a bit, but it did not affect the taste. I served with parmesan couscous and a dry Sauv Blanc for an excellent and quick Friday night meal! Will definitely make again.
Oh so delicious! I made with shrimp but want to try scallops. Microwaved the broccoli for 60 seconds on high. Added Mrs. Dash garlic, course ground pepper, red pepper and a little lemon pepper in addition to the lemon juice and lemon zest. It was easy and tasted great! It's a keeper!! Yes, Steps 3 and 4 are out of order, but one has to combine the shrimp and broccoli before it can be cooked, so.... no big deal.
I guess I messed up but I wasn't impressed. I'm thinking that step #4 is out of place. Maybe you're supposed to apply the mixture before the broccoli is placed in the oven?
Everyone just loved this dish--Very easy and I will certainly try it with scallops!
I must have done something wrong. Although I enjoyed it, DH didn't care for it. He said it was too spicy; that's odd coming from him as he usually tolerates spice better than I.
Made this tonight for dinner - very easy, very tasty. Next time, I think I'll add some garlic, but this is a simple, flavorful recipe even without it. I'm glad to have found another healthy meal to put into our rotation.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
Was a filling meal. The flavor of the broccoli was tangy.
