Shrimp and Broccoli

28 Jan

Happy Monday! I started off the week by FINALLY checking off all the lists and trainings for the hospital here in Okinawa which means… I get to start being on the floor! It’s as a volunteer but at this point it’s a hospital job so I’m happy 🙂

I spent way longer working on that than I had planned so dinner became a “what do we have in the house?” But it turned out really well (it pays to keep some frozen options around) and hubby and I basically ended up with a Shrimp and Broccoli Stir-Fry. As usual when this happens I didn’t measure anything…I should really stop doing that… so what’s listed below is my best guess.

You’ll need…

  • 2 C chopped broccoli
  • 1 C Orange Juice (we actually had made orange-pineapple juice the other day so I used that)
  • 1/2 C Reduced Sodium GF Soy Sauce** all the GF readers make sure you’re reading labels!
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • pre-cooked salad shrimp
  • 1.5 C cooked quinoa
  1. Add the juice, soy sauce, and garlic into large sauce pan. Cover and heat over med-high heat until it starts to boil
  2. Add in broccoli, ginger, pepper, and honey. Cover and reduce heat to low until broccoli is tender
  3. Add in shrimp and cilantro for about 5 min (Assuming you have the pre-cooked!)
  4. Stir in the quinoa, simmer another 5 min and serve
