  1. In a medium bowl, toss together shrimp, 1/4 cup olive oil, zest, tomatoes, salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté green pepper and shallot 4 to 5 minutes until softened and fragrant, stirring occasionally. Add vegetable broth and cook 3 minutes more. Remove 1 cup of broth to a heat-safe container; set aside. Add farro, bring to a boil and then simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  3. Meanwhile, spread shrimp mixture onto a rimmed baking sheet and broil 4 to 5 minutes, turning halfway through, until shrimp are fully cooked.
  4. Stir lemon juice, parmesan and basil into farro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. To serve, place farro mixture on a shallow serving bowl and top with roasted shrimp mixture. Drizzle the reserved broth over and around all. Garnish with additional parmesan and basil, if desired. Serve immediately.
