  4. Set aside half of the sauce for serving and toss the shrimp with the remaining sauce.
  5. On the prepared pan, toss the broccoli with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Arrange in a single layer and broil until lightly browned on the edges, about 3 minutes, keeping a close eye on the pan and tossing occasionally to prevent burning.
