Healthy Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli that is garlicky, cheesy, ready in under 30 minutes, and still healthy!
When it comes to Valentine's Day, I am strictly a stay at home kind of girl these days. I used to love going out but now I would much rather stay in, cook a yummy dinner, and save my night out for one that isn't full of expensive prix fixe menus and crowds. Ugh - I am sooooo old. On a side note, I am all about the Valentine's Day brunch, especially if its on a weekday.
This year I have been brainstorming dinner ideas and I keep coming back to this simple Garlic Parmesan Shrimp and Broccoli dish. It has so much flavor from the garlic, Parmesan cheese, and lemon and since it is ready in under 30 minutes, you don't have to slave away at the stove for hours. Plus it feels like a special meal, especially with a warm bowl of polenta or pasta. I also love using this recipe (minus the broccoli) as an appetizer. The Garlic Parmesan Shrimp are so yummy and make a great alternative to shrimp cocktail.
