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

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.

One-Pan Broccoli and 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.
