  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth and add to the pan along with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve the shrimp and sauce over the vegetables.

I really liked this recipe! It was easy to put together and the flavors worked well together. It was also a very pretty dish that I would be proud to serve to company. I did add some red pepper flakes to spice it up a little, and I thought it was a great addition. I served with Minute multi grain rice, which soaked up a little of the juice on the plate. They were perfect together, and it was very healthy. Read More
