  1. Combine broccoli and water in a glass bowl; steam in microwave oven until slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Heat peanut oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Cook garlic in hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; add chicken broth, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and ginger root to the garlic. Bring the mixture to a boil and add the shrimp; cook and stir until the shrimp turn pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Toss steamed broccoli and water chestnuts with the shrimp mixture to coat with the sauce. Stir cornstarch into the mixture 1 tablespoon at a time until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.

I added a red and orange pepper to this recipe and it turned out amazing! Thank you!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this. Tasted like it came right out of a restaurant too. I made a few changes based on what I already had at home. I used 1lb wild caught frozen shrimp, powd...

Very nice. I used a 50/50 blend of sesame oil and olive oil instead of peanut oil and I used powdered ginger instead of ginger root. I also left out the water chestnuts and I used a lobster ...

It's so good my husband thought I bought take out! I cooked the shrimp in garlic, added some extra seasoning or it would of been too bland and then added the broccoli and sauce. Delish!!

Hubs said this one is a "do it again". I used mushrooms instead of the water chestnuts, and served this over angel hair pasta. The sauce could use a little "kick". Next time I will add some c...
