Ginger Shrimp and Broccoli

  • 4 oz. "Jumbo" shrimp, peeled - Which these supposedly were.  I wish I lived on the coast.
  • Broccoli
  • Green onion - 1 stalk
  • Ginger - a good chunk, sliced.
  • 1/2 t corn starch
  • 2 T oyster sauce
  • 1/2 T rice wine
  • Sesame oil - a dash
  • A pinch of sugar
  • Pepper and salt to taste.
Please excuse the dark picture.  I was too ravenous and didn't realize the flash didn't go off until after I devoured the food.

  1. Marinate the shrimp in corn starch and a little oil for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Blanch broccoli in boiling water for 30-45 seconds, plunge in to cold water and then dry.
  3. Heat your wok until very hot (with oil), add ginger and stir for a few seconds.
  4. Add green onions and stir briefly.
  5. Add shrimp
  6. When shrimp are roughly half done, toss broccoli in.
  7. When shrimp is almost done, put oyster sauce, rice wine, sesame oil and sugar in.  Stir for a few seconds to coat and serve.
