Cook and enjoy


1. Using a strainer or colander, rinse the rice under cold, running water, then drain and transfer to a small saucepan. Add broth and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.

  • 1 cup basmati rice

  • 16 fl oz (2 cups) chicken or vegetable broth

2. If using frozen shrimp, place them in a colander and run under cold water to thaw them slightly and remove any ice crystals. (If using fresh shrimp, skip this step.) Place the shrimp on a clean towel or paper towels and pat dry.

  • 1 ½ lb raw peeled shrimp, fresh or frozen

3. Once the liquid comes to a boil, stir the mixture, cover the saucepan, and reduce the heat to low. Cook the rice until the liquid is fully absorbed, 15-18 minutes. Once done, remove the rice from the heat and let it stand, still covered, for 5 minutes.


4. Wash broccoli. Separate into bite-sized florets and cut stems into smaller pieces.

  • 2 crowns broccoli

In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, garlic powder, chili-garlic sauce, and honey. Set the sauce aside.

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder

  • ½ tsp chili-garlic sauce

  • 4 tsp honey

5. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.

6. Roughly chop walnuts.

  • ½ cup walnuts

7. Once the skillet is hot, add oil and swirl to coat the bottom.

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

8. Add broccoli and walnuts to the skillet and stir-fry until the broccoli is bright green and tender-crisp, 5-6 minutes. Remove from skillet and place in the bowl with the sauce.

9. Return the skillet to medium heat.

10. Cooking in batches if necessary, add the shrimp to the skillet; cook until opaque, 1-2 minutes per side. Once done, transfer shrimp to the bowl with the broccoli and sauce. Stir to combine.


To serve, divide the rice, shrimp, and broccoli between bowls and garnish with crushed red pepper. Enjoy!

  • ⅛ tsp crushed red pepper
