I am in a big rush today, and when I need to cook a quick meal that’s full of flavor, I always turn to Asian food!
My Thai Shrimp and Broccoli is spicy and good!
I love cooking foods that have lots of vegetables because I can easily change the taste of a recipe by switching out the veggies.
For this dish I am using broccoli, but I’ve made my Spicy Thai Shrimp and Broccoli with zucchini, butternut squash and spinach…all giving the final dish a different taste, but still full of flavor!
I started off by sauteing carrot and garlic in a little extra virgin olive oil.
Next, I added my broccoli and some of the stems to the carrot mixture and cooked that for about 1 minute.
Added a little broth, covered the pan and steamed it for 2 minutes more.
Done…yes it was that quick. Less than 15 minutes. I like to serve this with hot rice or noodles!
I highly suggest you double this recipe. I would say this serves around 2 people, 1 if you’re really hungry!
It’s time to eat, I need some Lumpia egg rolls to bring me some crunch with my shrimp!
