Make

  1. Toss shrimp with seasoning.
  2. Heat a wok or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add first part of oil and then broccoli to heated oil. Saute broccoli until it turns bright green. Add soy sauce and then cover with a lid. Steam broccoli, covered, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove lid and add garlic to broccoli. Saute together for 2 minutes more.
  3. Set broccoli aside.
  4. Wipe pan clean and return to medium-high heat. Add second part of oil and then shrimp to heated oil. Using tongs, arrange shrimp in a single layer so they cook more evenly. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until shrimp is golden.
  5. Remove from heat and toss shrimp with sauce, walnuts, and cilantro.
  6. If quinoa was made ahead, reheat in the microwave.
  7. Serve shrimp over broccoli and quinoa. Enjoy!

Yummy but I only used half of the sriacha. Also I recommend cutting the broccoli up fairly small.

We've eaten the earlier version of this dish. This was again delicious but even with cutting the amount of sriracha in half it was hot. Maybe the new bottle of sriracha? I see there's a label that says shake well...

It was a great easy meal, but even half the amount of sriracha was a little too spicy for us. I’d use even less next time.
