Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to reach for when I need a quick and tasty meal. Since it cooks up in less than 5 minutes, you can flavor it almost any way and have a meal in minutes. In this simple recipe we pair shrimp and broccoli with fresh lemon juice and lemon pepper to create a healthy, low carb, and delicious meal. Leave out the cheese for Paleo or clean eating.
