Thinking about something simple but tasty? Shrimp with broccoli is the one! It can be simply served on top of white rice, or as part of a multi-course meal with friends and families. The key is to keep each ingredient as fresh as possible so that the color is original and vibrant.

I used large-sized shrimps since they tend to shrink a bit after cooking. If you like any other vegetables, please feel free to add them in. That’s the beauty of stir-fry:)  Just simply boil all in a pot with a few drops of oil, which helps maintain the color of ingredients. Oyster sauce is a must have for this recipe. You can get it from any Chinese or Korean grocery store, or even online. Now let’s start cooking!

  1. Fantastic! I have been searching for this recipe for years! 5 stars for sure. One of my favorite dish in the world. When preparing the sauce component I added an extra cup or so of water and tripled up on the oyster sauce and cornstarch. I additionally added a few thin slices of ginger. I love gravy!!
