Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry
If starting with frozen shrimp. I find the best way to thaw them is to line a sheet pan with paper towels and place the shrimp on in a single layer. This helps to soak up the extra water from the shrimp.
Chop the broccoli into bite-size florets and peel and devein the shrimp. Or make the prep even faster and purchase the florets and shrimp already cleaned.
Mix the soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, fresh ginger, garlic, sesame oil, cornstarch, and sriracha (if using) in a small bowl or measuring cup. Set it aside.
If you like it extra spicy add some red pepper flakes to the sauce.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli florets, cover and cook 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove to a clean plate.
Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the skillet, add shrimp, cook stirring frequently, until starting to turn pink 1-2 minutes. You don’t want to overcook the shrimp at this point, they will become tough. They will continue to cook when you add everything back to the pan.
Return the broccoli back to the pan, give it a toss and stir in the sauce mixture until combined.
Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce starts to slightly thicken about 1-2 minutes.
Super easy healthy meal in under 30 minutes!
