  • Garlic - 2 cloves , chopped
  • Soy sauce, low-sodium - 1/4 cup
  • Hoisin sauce - 1/4 cup
  • Stock - 1/4 cup
  • Vinegar, rice - 1 Tbsp
  • Cornstarch - 2 tsp
  • Oil, toasted sesame - 1 tsp
  • Chili garlic sauce - 1 tsp
Hoisin Shrimp and Broccoli Stir-fry:
  • Shrimp, peeled and deveined - 16 oz , defrosted
  • Broccoli - 12 oz , chopped
  • Bell peppers, any color - 1 , cubed
  • Snow peas, fresh or frozen - 10 oz
  • Limes - 1/2 , wedges
  • Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
  • Hoisin Stir-fry Sauce (ingredients listed separately) - ~1/2 cup
  • Hot sauce (opt) - for serving
Rice (x2 nights):
  • Rice, uncooked white or brown - 1 2/3 cup


  1. Rice - (This makes enough for 2 nights.) For white rice, rinse until clear. Fill a saucepan or Dutch oven (or rice cooker) with rice, water (use 2:1 ratio for water to rice), and some salt. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once water boils, stir, lower heat to a low-medium, and cover. Check white rice after ~20 min; brown at ~45 min. Rice is done when it's absorbed all the water. If it's not done, leave the cover on until all water has been absorbed. Take cover off to release steam and fluff with a wooden spoon after 5 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Shrimp - Defrost, rinse, and pat dry.
  3. Make sauce - Chop garlic. Combine garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, stock, vinegar, cornstarch, toasted sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Broccoli / Bell peppers - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  5. Snow peas - If using fresh snow peas, trim ends. If using frozen, defrost. (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
  6. Limes - Slice into wedges.

  2. Add snow peas and saute for 2 minutes more.
  3. Add shrimp and sauce to stir-fry and cook everything together until shrimp is cooked through and sauce coats other ingredients, 4 to 5 minutes.
