Roasted Shrimp and Broccoli

This is is definitely going to show up again on our table soon.  Easy.  Quick.  Delicious.  Nutritious.  Everyone was a fan.  I added mushrooms because I had some on hand and Ryan and I both agreed you really need jasmine rice to make the meal.

2 pounds broccoli cut into florets (I like some stems attached)
4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp salt, divided
1 tsp pepper, divided
1 lb. shrimp, shelled and deveined
lemon zest from one medium lemon
cooked jasmine rice

Pre-heat oven to to 425.

On a large cookie sheet, toss together broccoli, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper.  Spread into a single layer and pop into the oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss together one pound large shrimp with remaining 2 Tbs olive oil, lemon zest from one lemon, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper in a bowl. When the broccoli has been in the oven 10 minutes, add the shrimp to the broccoli and toss.  Put back in the oven for another 10 minutes.  Serve over a steaming bowl of jasmine rice with lemon wedges.
