Garlicky Pink & Green Yumminess

So here I sit after a fine tasting, relatively good for me and very quick dinner. If I hadn't had to make the rice it would have been about 15 minutes but brown rice takes almost an hour so while it cooked I caught up on Facebook and the completed the prep for the main event; shrimp with green.

Shrimp with Green

8oz Prawns, peeled & deveined - I used 21-25s, on sale for $3.99 a pound so still frugal
6oz Broccoli florets
.5oz Garlic, fresh minced
1.5Tbl Peanut oil

Combine the following -
2Tbl Shaosing rice wine
1tsp Sesame oil
1tsp Hoison sauce
1tsp Sriracha - I like spicy so this definitely to taste
1Tbl Soy sauce

In a hot wok, add the peanut oil and garlic and stir quickly
Add the shrimp and broccoli tossing to coat with the oil and garlic and spread out in the wok to get it all over the cooking surface for about 90 seconds
Stir again and add the sauce
Continue to stir fry until the shrimp is just about done and the broccoli is still crisp; by this time the sauce should have reduced a bit and coated the goodies

Serve over hot steamed brown rice & serve with an IPA, mine of choice lately has been the Sierra Nevada Torpedo but the Widmer Broken Halo is a fine choice as well
