Living in with a family friend’s family in Brooklyn who happened to be non pork and beef meat lover and I often cook this dish with chicken only. Well, this is not just I used. I do use shrimp and seafood too. Later in the month, I will share this dish again with other meat. This dish is very easy to cook and quick to cook.



Serves 6


12ozs shrimp, shelled and deveined, butterfly it slightly

9ozs organic broccoli florets

3-inches long fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

4/5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped

Dash of salt

¾ tablespoon cornstarch

3¾ canola/olive and corn oil




1½ tablespoons oyster sauce

1½ seasoning sauce

1½ teaspoons cooking white wine

½ teaspoon sesame oil

1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch

1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

6 tablespoons water/chicken broth/fish broth



Place shrimp pieces in a mixing bowl with salt and cornstarch. Combine until well coated on the shrimp. Set aside to marinate for 1 minutes.

Place the broccoli florets in a pot and just at enough water to cover over and cook over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, blanch for a minutes. Drained and set aside for later use.

Heat a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat until hot, add the oil and heat till just begin to show slight smoke. Stir in the chopped garlic and stir-fry until aromatic or light golden brown. Add the marinated shrimp and stir-fry until is opaque in color. Stir in the sauce mixture and combine well with the shrimp, reduce heat and cook for a two minutes. Add the blanched broccoli florets and give a quick stir until well combined. Remove from heat and dish out into a serving plate.

Heat up a wok or skillet on high heat, add the oil. When the oil is heated, add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic or become light brown. Add the shrimp and do a few quick stirs. Add the sauce and turn the heat to low. When the shrimp is cooked through, add the broccoli, stir to combine well. Dish out and serve immediately.
