  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.

  2. While oven heats, heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add onions and bell peppers with a pinch of salt. Saute until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add diced tomatoes (including juice) and crushed tomatoes and stir to combine. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, 4 to 5 minutes. 

  3. Arrange shrimp on top of tomato sauce in a single layer. Top with some fresh cracked black pepper. Transfer to oven and bake until shrimp are cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. 

  4. While shrimp cooks, place a second skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add butter. When butter is melted, add broccoli and saute until bright green and tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add cauliflower rice and continue cooking until tender, another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and toss with lemon juice and zest. Season with some salt and pepper and more lemon juice, to taste. 

  5. Serve shrimp over cauliflower rice and broccoli. Enjoy!
