10 Reviews for Shrimp with Broccoli

A staple at my house

This is a go-to recipe at my house. I've been making it for years ever since I found it on the Food Network's website.

I always have the ingredients on hand
easy and delicious

I used chicken broth instead of water since I had it. I also used the basil and garlic from a jar. I think it would have been better with fresh garlic but this was still great! This is also a perfect recipe to try different combinations of veggies....mushrooms, peapods, water chestnuts, bean sprouts with the broccoli would all be good. I think I would add a bit more broth and thickener next time to have more sauce and more veggies because you just can't have too many veggies. I will make this again and again...


This was one of the best things I've ever made! My whole family LOVED it! My 9 year old daughter ate three helpings! I used chicken broth, skipped the crushed red pepper, and served it over orzo pasta. I might serve it over brown rice next time just to make it a little healthier. This recipe is definitely a keeper, and I'll be making it many times to come! Delicious!!

very good!

I made this in less than 30 minutes, love that!!

I used frozen shrimp, added a bit more liquid but then I cooked the broccoli in that and it was fine. Needed more broccoli. I also sub'd flour for cornstarch, didn't miss the cornstarch. It tasted a little salty at first but then I added a little more liquid to make more sauce because we served it over whole wheat spaghetti, it was yummy. Didn't have any lemon, maybe that's what was missing. My husband said to use more garlic. The whole deal could be a bit saucier... not sure if I would change it much beyond that, simple, tasty, low-fat... It's a keeper!

Even my finicky husband and 8 yr old son loved it and said I have to make it again!

so easy to make

Too frackin awesome! No cornstarch, substituted flour, still so tasty!!! Served with mandarin orange salad with fresh greens, sunflower seeds and Asian sesame dressing. Whole meal 270 calories--cannot beat that!
