Super Fast Shrimp and Broccoli
Get a delicious dinner on the table FAST! I think I’m wearing my rice cooker out, it didn’t want to start for me this time but I finally coerced it into working. Start the rice first, then stir fry the rest.
|1 large skillet with a lid….or use foil to cover
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 pound sliced smoked sausage (a spicy one if you like)
1 pound of peeled and deveined shrimp
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
4 cups of broccoli florets
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons apricot preserves
1 tablespoon rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of water if necessary
|Heat oil in a medium/hot skillet and sauté sausage. Add shrimp and cook until it just turns pink. Remove shrimp and sausage from the pan.
Add the finely chopped ginger, broccoli, soy sauce, apricot jam and vinegar stir and cover. Let the broccoli steam for 3-5 minutes. Add up to 2 tablespoons of water if needed to keep from burning. Add the shrimp and sausage, stirring to coat with the sauce.
Serve over rice.
