Roasted Broccoli With Shrimp

Surprisingly tasty and easy to deliver- just be patient with broccoli, do not let it overcook. This means the time to insert the shrimp is when the broccoli is just becoming ‘al dente’.

I made a mess by inserting the blob of otherwise lovely rice noodles into the pan; I will not do it again. I’ll let people synchronize them on the plates..IMG_0376Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 kg broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
  • 4 tablespoons (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot chili powder
  • 500g large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 large lemon)
  • Lemon wedges, for serving.
  1. Preheat oven to 425F/200C .
  2. In a large bowl, toss broccoli with 2 tablespoons oil, coriander, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and chili powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine shrimp, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon zest, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Spread broccoli in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  5. Roast for 10 minutes or more. Make sure they are almost as done as you want the final product to be.
