Garlic Broccoli Shrimp Stir Fry

Caregory : Dinner Ideas

I love pairing the crunch of sizzling shrimp with the crisp-tender sweetness of sautéed broccoli. It's a dance of texture you wouldn't expect from two such commonplace ingredients.


    • 1 lb large shrimp(455 g), peeled and deveined
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 cups broccoli floret(500 g)
    • ½ onion, diced
    • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided


    1. Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat.
    2. Pour in the shrimp and season with ¼ teaspoon of the salt.
    3. Fry the shrimp for 1 minute on each side.
    4. Remove the shrimp from the pan and pour in the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.
    5. Toss in the onion and remaining ¼ teaspoon of salt and sauté for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
    6. Add in the broccoli, garlic and soy sauce and sauté until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.
    7. Toss the shrimp back into the pan and mix until everything is well incorporated and the shrimp is fully cooked, about 1 minute.
    8. Divide the mixture evenly between 4 bowls.
