Shrimp and Broccoli
So, I posted this video on my Instagram yesterday without putting much thought into it or the recipe. This was a quick meal that I threw together because I didn’t want to order out, and I wanted to make sure my babies were getting some REAL food. So, I took a look in my fridge and pulled out some veggies that were on their way out and the shrimp I had been thawing since the previous night and this yummy meal was created. My girls loved it and apparently you guys did also so, heres the much requested recipe. The best part of this is you can make it Keto friendly by subbing the brown sugar with a keto-friendly sugar and use cauliflower rice instead of the jasmine rice. Enjoy this gem and make sure you tag me on Instagram.
Shrimp and Broccoli
Quick and easy weekday meal for moms on the go. A restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes.
Mix all sauce ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl until all are incorporated. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Once water is boiling add 1/2 tbsp of sesame oil and stir in jasmine rice. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
In a medium bowl season your shrimp with the 5 seasonings and set aside.
Heat 1/4 cup of sesame oil in wok or large skillet on a medium high heat once hot add shrimp and garlic. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes. Remove shrimp and set aside.
Add broccoli and cook to your desired texture (I cook mine for about 8 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and saute for 5 minutes , or longer if you like softer veggies.
Add shrimp and pour sauce over mixture and toss until all veggies and shrimp have sauce evenly covering them.
Serve over jasmine and enjoy!
This sauce can be enjoyed with veggies and rice.
You can sub out shrimp for any of your favorite proteins or make it a veggie medley using your favorite vegetables.
Fresh ginger is always my preference if you have it on hand.
Cornstarch isn't necessary unless you prefer a thicker sauce (I didn't use any in mine)
Miso Tamari isn't necessary I just used it because I had it on hand. Soy works just fine.
Omit the brown sugar and sub for a keto friendly sugar.
Hoison has 6g of carbs so depending on your carb intake for the day you can omit this as well.
Most importantly remember this is your meal so do you! Make it your own i.e. use the veggies you prefer, what I used is what I had on hand.
