Prep

  1. Rice - 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 then pat dry.
  3. Garlic / Broccoli - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Make seasoning for shrimp - Combine garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  5. Make sauce for shrimp - Combine mayonnaise, Sriracha, vinegar, and honey. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  6. Cilantro - Chop leaves.

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 rice was made ahead, reheat in the microwave.
  7. Serve shrimp over broccoli and rice. Enjoy!

Really great! The tofu got nice and crispy, the sauce was tasty. Just generally a quick but awesome meal. Added to my favorites.

We made much less of the sauce. Had to adjust to omit garlic, but used garlic infused oil to get flavor.

If I made this again, I’d just do it with chicken. It was too much shrimp. I also eyeballed the mayo and used too much which made it less tasty for me.

I ended up roasting both the shrimp and the broccoli (fewer dishes that way). Since I also have spicy-adverse family members, I left the sauce off half the shrimp. My pickiest eater took 2 bites and was done, the other 2 finished theirs. Overall, this was great! Nice and easy and super tasty!

Loved the broccoli and the sauce! If I would change one thing, I think I would omit the walnuts. I found them confusing.

I roasted the broccoli for ease. The flavors in this dish are A+. I should make this meal more often. I also made it with chicken for some of my non-shrimp eaters.
