I made this dish today for me and my little Momma. We both love shrimp, broccoli and peas and thought this would make for a perfect meal. It is lite, refreshing and flavorful. Not only that, it is a very healthy meal too. This recipe is from my Ninja cookbook but I added several spices & pecans instead of pine nuts along with using a smaller shrimp.
