ROSEMARY ROASTED SHRIMP ON CAULIFLOWER RICE

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons fresh chopped rosemary

1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1⁄2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 (8-ounce) zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut across in 1⁄4-inch slices

1 (10.5-ounce) bag frozen riced cauliflower, thawed (about 2 1⁄2 cups)

 

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking sheet pan with cooking spray.

2. Combine the lemon juice, salt, pepper, rosemary and mustard in a small bowl; whisk in the olive oil.

3. Place the sheet pan in the heated oven for 2 minutes; remove and spread the cauliflower evenly over the surface. Return to the oven and cook 15 minutes, until the cauliflower is dried and lightly browned. Transfer to a plate.4. Toss 1 tablespoon of the lemon mixture with the shrimp and, in a separate bowl, toss 1 tablespoon with the zucchini.

5. Spread the zucchini out in a single layer on the pan and return to the oven; cook 5 minutes, until somewhat tender and slightly browned on the undersides; flip them over and add the shrimp. Allow the shrimp and zucchini to take up about 3⁄4 of the pan; spread the cauliflower in the remaining quarter of the pan. Return to the oven and cook 5 minutes, until shrimp is cooked through and zucchini is crisp-tender. Toss together on sheet pan and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Makes 4 servings.

2 teaspoons lemon juice
