Ingredients

  • 19 oz broccoli
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ oz ginger julienned
  • 12 shrimp
  • 5 shiitake mushrooms optional, cut into chunks
  • 1 ½ tsp corn starch
  • 1 ½ tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp sesame oil optional

Instructions

  • First blanche the broccoli. Boil some water. Add the broccoli and cook for 10 seconds. Take them out and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan over high heat. Add garlic and ginger to the pan. Cook for 20 seconds.
  • Next, add the shrimp and mushrooms. Cook for another 20 seconds until the shrimp starts to turn orange and the mushrooms start to cook through.
  • Add the broccoli and cook for 1 minute.
  • Mix the corn starch with 2 tablespoons of water. Add the oyster sauce, soy sauce, and corn starch slurry. Mix and cook for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Add the sesame oil and stir. Remove from the heat. Taste the dish for seasoning and add salt if it tastes too bland.
  • Serve with a side of rice.

Notes

  • Blanching the broccoli or whatever vegetables you use will bring out the flavor and make its color more vibrant.
  • Make sure to cook this dish over high heat. Otherwise, water will start to come out of the vegetables, and you will get a watery sauce.
  • In addition to white rice, you can also serve this with brown rice or quinoa.
