Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli

This week I bring you a recipe that impressed EVERY member of my family with how tender, juicy and delicious it is. I loved this Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli dinner even MORE because it was a one pot meal and cooked up in less than 10 minutes!

Sweet, tender and juicy shrimp are an often overlooked protein when it comes to Lean and Green meals. It's too bad, really, but understandable. Shrimp can easily get overcooked, rubbery and they can be pretty bland if not prepared right.

The key is to use fresh shrimp, that is wild caught and not farm raised. When I say fresh I mean fresh from the fishmonger, OR, thawed. Simply take the shells off and go!

You'll take more time in prepping- peeling the shrimp and cutting up the broccoli than you will actually COOKING this dish. And the results will speak for themselves. With just one pan to cook, it will be easy to bribe someone else to do the dishes :)

Give this one a try and for sure, post your results. We can't wait to see your smiles!
