Recipe - Roasted Broccoli and Prawns

I've returned to the #singlelife. By that I mean that I've been much more proactive about doing my chores and seeing my friends, not that I've been sleeping with strangers. Not that I did that before. ANYWAY. The crucial difference that I should talk about on this 'food blog' is the fact that I've returned to eating on my own. I avoided it for a while what with leftover Zain's and then my new favourite pasta dish (aubergine and anchovy) with Stompy. But then, on Tuesday, it was time. I chose a 'midweek supper' that I could make for lunch whilst teaching a Skype lesson. I'm told that it's Amateur Gourmet's most popular dish/all time favourite.

Roasted broccoli and shrimp
Cut up broccoli and lay on a baking tray.
Sprinkle with salt, about half a teaspoon of ground coriander and half a teaspoon of chilli chilli powder.
Place in oven for ten minutes.
Remove from oven and scatter over prawns.
Sprinkle prawns with lemon juice, salt and 1 fresh chilli and a little vegetable oil.
Place some whole garlic cloves on the tray.
Return to oven for 5 - 10 minutes, however long it take the prawns to turn pink.
Serve with some rice and a touch of soy sauce. Really, really delicious.
