This creamy garlic shrimp with broccoli takes around 15 minutes to make. It’s a delicious and easy keto dinner recipe that kinda reminds me of pasta, but there isn’t any. You only need one pan to make it.

To me, the only things this dish needed in the end were Parmesan and black pepper. And lots of those.
