For the veggies:

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

For the rice:

  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • Set aside and allow to marinate while you make the veggies.

For veggies:

  • Combine all veggie ingredients in a large bowl.  Use your hands to toss and evenly coat veggies with oil and seasoning.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the rice and salsa.  In a medium bowl, combine rice with cilantro, salt and lime juice.

  • Remove veggies from oven and place marinated shrimp (leaving excess marinade in the bowl) evenly among the veggies.
