Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 large cloves garlic grated
  • 1 knob ginger freshly grated
  • 1 lime juiced

For the Stir Fry

  • 1 pound medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 large head broccoli cut florets
  • 1 bunch scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Brown rice for serving

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, Sriracha, cornstarch, garlic, ginger and lime juice.
  • Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add broccoli and scallions (saving some for serving), and cook, until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes.
  • Lower the heat to medium high, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimps are pink and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
