What to pair your Shrimp, Broccoli and Sweet Pepper With?
I Upped my Shrimp and Broccoli game by adding some red bell peppers. This one-skillet recipe came together in less than 15 minutes and is a fabulous choice for weeknight dinners. For a perfect sear on the shrimp, I use a cast iron skillet. I used my @lodgecastiron 10.25” skillet from start to finish.
I enjoy pairing my shrimp dish with a combination of household ingredients including:
Noodles (the choice is yours)
