Okay, so you’ve waited long enough for a new recipe. I will not keep you waiting any longer. Smile

I got the idea for this recipe from a Cooking Light recipe that was made with beef instead of shrimp. A few weeks ago, I made the original recipe and it was delicious. This time I made it with shrimp and I think it was even better than the beef. It’s very easy to make and low in calories.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make 4 servings (1 cup of stir-fry and about 1/2 cup of rice)

  • 1 bag boil-in-bag brown rice
  • 12 oz. shrimp (I used pre-cooked shrimp…time saver)
  • 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil (not pictured..oops)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil

Cook the rice according to the package directions. (The brand that I used is from Trader Joe’s. It is the fastest and tastiest brown rice I’ve ever had. You just pop the bag into the microwave for 3 minutes and it’s cooked perfectly in no time at all).

Combine soy sauce and hoisin in a medium bowl. Add shrimp; toss to coat.

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan. Remove the shrimp from the soy sauce mixture (reserving the soy sauce) and place the shrimp into the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side.

Remove shrimp from the pan. Add broccoli, red onion, chopped carrots, water, and sesame oil to pan. Cook for about 5 minutes (or until the broccoli is tender) stirring occasionally.

Add reserved soy mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Cook the veggies for about 1 minute. Add the shrimp to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes or until the shrimp is thoroughly heated.
