  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest plus 5 to 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
  • 1 pound broccoli, cut into small florets, with stalks peeled and sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound large, frozen, peeled, and deveined shrimp, thawed and patted dry

  1. In a large skillet with a lid, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium. Add white part of scallions, lemon zest, broccoli, and 1/2 cup water; season with salt and pepper, and toss. Cover, and cook until broccoli is bright green and just beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Add lemon juice, green part of scallions, and remaining butter; season with salt and pepper. Toss gently and serve.
