For the broccoli:
- 12 ounces brocolli florets
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
For the shrimp:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce if you prefer)
- 4 cloves minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger (optional but delicious)
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 lb medium uncooked shrimp (peeled & deveined)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon tapioca flour (or corn starch)
- optional: chopped green onion and sesame seeds for garnish
Serve with: white or brown rice
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil or a silpat mat and spray with non stick spray. Set aside.
Whisk the honey, coconut aminos, garlic, and ginger together in a medium bowl. Place half of it in a separate bowl to make the sauce. With the remaining marinate in the bowl, add the shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate the shrimp in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or for up to 8-12 hours. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for step later.
While it’s marinating, start roasting the broccoli. Add the broccoli to the prepared baking pan and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove pan form the oven and push the broccoli to one side of the pan (keeping it in a single layer). Add the marinated shrimp then bake for 10-12 more minutes until the shrimp are opaque and broccoli is tender.
While the shrimp are baking, make the sauce. Add the reserved sauce to a small sauce pan. Whisk together the tapioca flour with 1 tablespoon of water then add it to the saucepan. Heat on medium-high, stir constantly until the sauce begins to thicken. Set aside.
To save time, make instant brown or white rice while the shrimp and broccoli are baking as well
Once baked serve over rice with extra sauce and sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
You could use cooked frozen shrimp if you would like. Make sure shrimp is completely thawed and bake for less time, about 6-8 minutes.
If you don't want to serve with rice you could add more broccoli to the sheet pan to have more veggies.
