• 6 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped (1 Tbs.)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1 (6-oz.) box long-grain and wild rice mix (such as Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Rice, Original Recipe)
  • 2 1/4 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups broccoli florets (from 1 head)
  • 3 Tbs. J. Olive Co. EVOO
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces large peeled, deveined raw shrimp


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine butter, garlic, lemon juice, black and red pepper, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH until melted, about 45 seconds; set aside.
  2. Cook rice according to package directions, substituting broth for water. Fluff with a fork; stir in 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, toss together broccoli, oil, lemon slices, and remaining 1⁄2 teaspoon salt on a rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 13 minutes.
  4. Arrange shrimp on baking sheet with broccoli. Drizzle with remaining butter mixture. Bake at 450°F until shrimp are pink, about 5 minutes. Serve with rice.
