Simplicity reigns, we can't wait to have this again and again and... Just the right tang! This is great for WW diets. Scaled down to 2 servings, bought bagged broccoli florets, and prep took very little time. Bought 3/4 lb. of 26-30 count raw shrimp, so it didn't take long to peel the shrimp, either. Thank you KUW!

Such a simple weeknight recipe! I love that it is so healthy, too. This was really tasty. I loved the lemon flavor and the slight amount of heat from the crushed red pepper flakes. Easy and delicious! Thank you.
As usual, I changed things up... I used fresh broccoli and frozen pre-cooked shrimp. Tossed everything together and roasted it. By the time the shrimp was ready, the broccoli was perfectly steamed. Beautiful flavour, easy and healthy. I didn't award stars because I totally changed the recipe!
