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.

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.

Loved this one! Just the right spicy kick for me. I didn't have walnuts, but it was great anyway.

Another reviewer suggested air frying with tofu – we did that and it was fantastic! The sauce was too spicy for my youngest, even though we cut the sriracha in half. Everything else was great! A new favorite for sure - though I’ll probably use quinoa or farro or something other than rice next time.

I used gochujang sauce that I had in the fridge. I find it to be less spicy than sriracha sauce. I now always make my rice in the oven, I find it comes out very well, and one less thing to watch on the stove.

This was so delicious. I'm a weakling when it comes to spice, but this was just right! Loved it.

This meal was simple, flavorful, and healthy. I am usually not a fan of substituting cauliflower rice in dishes, but I mixed some frozen peas in with the cauliflower rice and it tasted great with this meal. Would definitely make again.
