New Recipe for Lunch Today - SHRIMP SCAMPI WITH BROCCOLI ORZO

Was struck by it when I saw it in an email and decided to try it out - with some modifications of course.

https://www.skinnytaste.com/shrimp-scampi-with-broccoli-orzo/

Used a bit less butter and oil. No cheese.
Had to estimate the amount of broccoli and orzo (veg & carb) based on the weight of the broccoli before cooking. Also added extra steamed broccoli on top and more shrimp than the recipe called for.

My son had it without the chili flakes and didn't even complain about the broccoli because he liked the dish so much! My daughter doesn't like shrimp so she had it with chunks of chicken breast and really liked it too - she loves broccoli but complains about meat - chicken cooked similarly to this shrimp recipe was flavorful enough to elicit a compliment.
It's a winner in my house so thought I'd share!

            Thanks for the share! Broccoli, rice and either chicken or salmon/cod/shrimp has been my plate of choice lately. Orzo needs a turn in the rotation.

              Legit, broccoli "rice," can partially or totally replace the real rice depending on where one is in a program. I am making this for dinner this week...
