Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk mirin, tamari (or soy sauce), water, ginger, sesame oil, chile-garlic sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Stir in broccoli and white and light green parts of scallions; cover and cook, undisturbed, until the broccoli just turns bright green, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp; cook, uncovered and stirring often, until the shrimp are almost cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk the sauce and add to the pan; cook, stirring constantly, until the broccoli is tender-crisp, the shrimp are opaque and the sauce has thickened, about 45 seconds. Remove from heat; stir in dark green parts of scallions. Serve with brown rice.


Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
