  • Makes: Serves 2.


2 large heads of broccoli

3-4 Tbsp. canola or olive oil

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. ground coriander

1/2 tsp. chili flakes

salt & freshly ground black pepper

10-20 large raw shrimp, shelled and deveined

1 lemon, zested and then cut into wedges


1Preheat oven to 425F.

2Toss the broccoli with about 2 tablespoons of oil, the cumin, coriander, 1/4 teaspoon of the chili flakes, and half the salt and pepper. In a small bowl, toss the shrimp with the remaining chili flakes, salt and pepper, olive oil and the lemon zest. Cut the lemon lengthwise into quarters.

3Spread the broccoli out on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, add the lemon wedges if you like, and roast for 10 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook for 8-10 minutes more – just until the shrimp are opaque. Serve over rice, with a squeeze of lemon.
