The beauty of this recipe is that it’s super easy to customize to your liking. Not a broccoli fan? Try carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, or a combination of vegetables. This easy stir-fry works with both fresh or frozen broccoli. If you go the frozen route, there’s no need to thaw the broccoli beforehand — just blanch it in the pan before you cook the shrimps. Don’t worry if you can only find smaller or larger shrimp. Simply adjust the cooking time accordingly, as smaller shrimp cook faster and larger may take a minute or two more.
