  • Cook rice as directed on package. Toss with freshly chopped parsley and set aside.
  • Spray an indoor grill or large skillet with cooking spray.
  • Toss shrimp in a bowl with pesto to coat.
  • If using an indoor grill, skewer the shrimp for easier handling. If not, heat the skillet over medium and toss in the shrimp. Cook approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Promptly remove from heat, cover, and set aside.
  • In a clean skillet, heat oil over medium. Chop broccoli and carrots; add to skillet and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until crisp-tender: approximately 5-7 minutes.
  • Serve shrimp over rice with veggies and apple slices on the side.
