with broccoli and rice
The dynamic flavors of this unique weeknight dish was such a hit that we've brought it back for Favorites Week. Many members said the cornstarch in the original recipe was tough to work with, so we've ditched it altogether in this updated version.
- Rice, jasmine, brown or white, uncooked - 3/4 cup
- Shrimp, peeled & deveined - 1 1/2 lbs
- Green onions - 2 stalks, sliced
- Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
- Broccoli - 1 1/2 lbs, chopped
- Garlic powder - 1 1/2 tsp
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
- Mayonnaise - 1/4 cup
- Sriracha (or other hot sauce) - 2 Tbsp
- Vinegar, rice - 1 Tbsp
- Honey - 2 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 2 tsp + 2 Tbsp
- Soy sauce, low-sodium - 2 tsp
- Walnuts - 4 oz
- Rice - Double if making Wednesday's Burrito Bowls. 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)
- Shrimp - Defrost, rinse, and then pat dry with paper towels.
- Green onions / Garlic / Broccoli - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
- Cook broccoli - Place garlic and broccoli into a microwave-safe container. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
- Make seasoning for shrimp - Mix together garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Make sauce for shrimp - Mix together mayo, Sriracha, rice vinegar, and honey. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated)
- Toss shrimp with seasoning mixture until thoroughly coated.
- Heat a wok or nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add first part of cooking oil and then microwaved garlic and broccoli to heated oil. Saute for 2 to 5 minutes, until broccoli is cooked through to your liking. Finish with soy sauce. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Wipe pan clean and return to medium-high heat. Add second part of cooking oil and then shrimp to heated oil. Using tongs, arrange shrimp so they're spread out into one layer so they cook more evenly. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side until shrimp is golden.
- Remove from heat and then toss with sauce, walnuts, and green onions. Enjoy shrimp over broccoli and rice (remember to save half of the rice if you doubled)!
Comes together really quickly if you prep ahead of time. Will definitely be making this again.0 Helpful
My husband loved it! I thought it was good and came together quickly.0 Helpful
Broccoli was super good. I probably needed to press more liquid out of the tofu because I didn't really taste the spice mix at all, even after doubling it, but overall a tasty dish!0 Helpful
To be fair, I do not like shrimp. Probably a pretty good recipe for someone who likes shrimp! Loved the broccoli.0 Helpful
I searched for shrimp and mayo in the archives because I had shrimp in the freezer and I'd just made a batch of scratch mayo for something else which I did not entirely use up. This recipe is very tasty and an excellent use of those two things!0 Helpful
Left out the walnuts. Used a rice cooker for brown rice. Very good!!0 Helpful
