Hoisin Shrimp with Roasted Vegetables

Yum
I don't know about you, but sometimes I just need a one pan meal that I can go to when things are crazy busy.  I know there are times when things are so hectic that it is easy to swing by a fast food restaurant to pick up dinner.  Believe me.  Been there, done that and still do that on occasion.  So, I love having one pan meals that are a much more healthy alternative. 
Here's what I am talking about.


Hoisin Shrimp and Roasted Vegetables is what I am talking about!
Hoisin Sauce is kind of known as an Asian flavored barbecue sauce, a sweet plum sauce that is wonderful on seafood and vegetables.  You will love the flavor and the easiness of this dish.


Chop the vegetables, toss in the sauce and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.  You will have dinner ready in 45 minutes or less.  How's that for an easy meal?

Ingredients:

Pass that fast food restaurant by because you are having dinner at home tonight!
