One-Pan Broccoli and Shrimp
Tastes Like Stir-Fry, But
A Much, Much Healthier Recipe

This one-pan broccoli and shrimp recipe was inspired by the diet program my co-worker introduced to me.

One-Pan Broccoli and Shrimp

Prep Time: 15 Minutes   Inactive Cook Time: 35-45 Minutes   Serving: 4

I tried to mimic the Shrimp and broccoli stir-fry, but in a healthy way.

Seriously, when you are on diet, you want to eat something natural instead of artificial. Spices are the things that there is no limit of how much you use and consume. So, I purposefully use a little bit of salt, but a lot of spices.

The goal is to cut down the salt consumption. But everything will taste blah...., right? That's when the cayenne pepper comes into place. It is so spicy that you got to have a few bites of broccoli to wash it down.

Tips on the Shrimp

I always recommend you to go by whatever is on sale. But through the cooking process, I learned that if the shrimp is bigger than the recommended count, it will take longer to cook through in this one-pan broccoli and shrimp recipe.

In the end, you will overlook the vegetables while waiting for the shrimp to turn opaque.

This is a very healthy one pot meal. If you want to be more filling, serve it together with rice.


3 pounds Frozen broccoli floret (unthawed)
1 pound Raw shrimp (31-40 counts; thawed, shelled and devined)


1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the seasonings and shrimp together and let sit for 15 minutes
  2. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up later
  3. Preheat oven at 400F
  4. Put broccoli florets into the pan and even them out
  5. Single layer the shrimp on top of the broccoli (spread them out; don't let them to be in clutter)
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes until broccoli is crisp tender and shrimp are opaque and serve immediately
