Garlic Shrimps with Buttery Broccoli

On with 0 Comment
Garlic Shrimps with Buttery BroccoliI generally prefer to make shrimps in the form of an appetizer. They cook so quickly and tastes heavenly with a spicy sauce. Today's recipe is slightly different and includes moist and creamy broccoli with seasoned shrimps overpowered by garlic. My family generally prefers this recipe with rice. I've used fresh garlic for this recipe, but good quality garlic powder can also be used. To make it more colorful, do not hesitate adding some carrots and bell peppers. That will also help add some fiber to this delicious recipe. Since shrimps get tender quite fast, cook broccoli in a separate pan and add to the shrimps when it's nearly done. So let's make this flavorful, scrumptious and almost irresistible recipe.
