For The Sauce

Instructions

Whisk together all ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT the cornstarch.  Pour half of the sauce over the shrimp, reserve the other half of the sauce.  Marinade the shrimp for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.

Add the cornstarch to the reserved sauce, whisk to combine.  Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the oil.  When hot, add the broccoli and stir fry until crisp-tender and bright green, about 5 minutes.  Remove broccoli from pan.

In the same pan, add the marinaded shrimp.  Sear on one side until starting to turn pink, 1-2 minutes, flip and repeat on other side.  Remove from pan as soon as shrimp are pink and cooked through.

Wipe out pan.  Return the broccoli to the pan.  Pour the reserved sauce over the broccoli and toss to fully coat the broccoli in the sauce.  Return the shrimp back to the pan.  Toss to coat everything in the sauce, continue to cook for about a minute, or until sauce has thickened and everything is heated through.  Remove from heat.

Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.

Notes

We don't put the cornstach in the marinade because it will make the shrimp very soft.  The cornstarch added to the reserved sauce will help it thicken.
