  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the water, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger, chili paste, brown sugar, and corn starch.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large 12 inch skillet, over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side being careful not to overcook. If the shrimp aren't fully pink at this point, it is okay, they will finish cooking in the following steps.
  • Add the broccoli and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, covered, stirring often.
  • Pour in the sauce and allow it to thicken for about two minutes while stiring. The sauce will not only thicken, it will turn a darker brown color.
