Roasted Broccoli With Shrimp

This is a quick and easy dinner to get on the table.  Don't be put off by the seasonings - if you don't have these then use something else like garlic or five spice powder or curry or Old Bay seasoning - it is what it is.  And adjust the spiciness according to your tastes (Susie likes it hot - I like it not!) 

This is great over salad greens or Cauliflower Rice.

Roasted Broccoli With Shrimp

2 pounds broccoli cut into bite-size florets

4 tablespoons ( 1/4 cup) extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds 

1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot chili powder
1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 1/4 teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 large lemon) 
Lemon wedges, for serving

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, toss broccoli with 2 tablespoons oil, coriander, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and chili powder. In a separate bowl, combine shrimp, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon zest, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper.  

Spread broccoli in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes. Add shrimp to baking sheet and toss with broccoli. Roast, tossing once halfway through, until shrimp are just opaque and broccoli is tender and golden around edges, about 10 minutes more.
