I’ll first say, YES of course there are many ways to make a broil. This is just my way and I hope you enjoy shrimp and broccoli because baybehh, the two of them together are AMAZING! I’ve been to many seafood places in my life, even cookouts with many great cooks. I think I just got inspiration from them all of how I would want my food cooked and what seasonings I would use.
I’m a BIG fan of seafood so this was right up my alley. I even tried the pescatarian life and well, that’s another story for another time. Let’s just say that. Seafood however can be seasoned many ways and that’s what I love most. I’m big on seasonings too. I think I have an overstock and I’ve decided to create my own. For this dish I went not so traditional on seasoning choices. I chose broccoli to give color and because it’s supposed to be good for you. Health is important right? This is also a dish where you can get your kiddos to EAT THE BROCCOLI! The flavors incorporated in this dish are just simply too amazing for anyone to pass up. Trust me you won’t have any left after you yell out the food is ready so be prepared.
This broil can be prepped in 15 minutes and done in 30 minutes. Another great thing about cooking this dish is the 30 minutes gives you free time since it’s cooked in the oven. I enjoy that small time as a mom. I can use it for spending time with my child or having myself a bit of me time. What mom doesn’t want that? So get your hands washed and let’s get into this.
