Shrimp and Broccoli in Hoisin Sauce

I made this super easy dish the other day for the little one as she loves Asian food and Shrimp. It can be thrown together in a jiffy in fact hubby asked how long it took to make, I said 15 minutes and he even now says why not make more dishes like this its tasty and easier for me.

 Finally I think he sees why I don't cook Indian dishes as much as before, while I really enjoy them they just take time. I was joking with my sis in law as she was saying how she is struggling to learn British food but if you can cook Indian cuisine others are easy!

 I was thrilled to hear she made her hubby a chicken stew from my blog today and they both enjoyed it. She's a great cook and has excelled in the last few years the other day she made a chocolate cake for one of my brother in laws birthdays being the foodie that I am I  picked up the phone straight away to say how good it looked! My hubby is the eldest of 7 so lots of good cooks in his family. In fact this fall one of his brothers is getting married in Burma/ Myamah. I got his fiancee to share a Burmese recipe a while back heres the link - Burmese Chicken Curry

 I won't be able to go with 2 little ones but can't wait to see pictures and the food at the wedding will try and share with you all.


  • about a cup of defrosted shrimp or fresh
  • 7-10 small mushrooms sliced
  • one head of broccoli sliced
  • 1/2 a red onion diced
  • a little ginger/garlic paste
  • about 2 tablespoon of hoisin sauce
  • 1/2-one tablespoon of oyster sauce

  1. sautee onions in canola oil for 5 minutes add ginger garlic paste, shrimp, broccoli and mushrooms
  2. stir fry on a medium to high heat until al dente and add the sauces
  3. its that easy! serve with rice we have recently been enjoying Japanese Kagakaki rice (use less water than Indian rice as it gets sticky one cup rice to one cup water)
