Broccoli and Shrimp

I don't think I have come across many recipes that have shrimp and broccoli as the two major ingredients. So when I found this one, I just had to give it a try. It's a nice and simple dish for a busy weekday.

1 1/3 pound broccoli
2/3 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
zest and juice of 1 lime
2-3 cloves garlic
2-3 dashes dried red pepper
1 ounce fresh ginger, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
2-3 tbsp sesame oil
2 ounces shallots, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced

Cut broccoli florets off, discard stems. Cook 4-5 minutes in salted water, drain. Toss shrimps with lime juice and zest, set aside. Whisk together garlic, red pepper, ginger, and soy sauce. Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add shallots and sauté, stirring, 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce mix and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Add broccoli and broth, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add shrimps with marinade and cook 3-4 minutes longer. Serve with rice and sprinkled with cilantro.
