Broccoli Shrimp Banchan

Today’s blog is a little late (ahhh an hour!), so sorry about that! Couldn’t get up this morning for some reason.

Anyway, I finally was able to go grocery shopping over the weekend. Hurrah! So I was finally able to cook some of the delicious recipes that my mum had emailed to me. Double hurrah!

So without further ado, here is the recipe to banchan number 1! I don’t really have a name for it though, but you guys can suggest one? 🙂

Things you’ll need:
-Broccoli (the store had actually run out of broccoli when I got there, so I had to make do with some baby broccoli)
-Shrimp (the small kind)
-Oyster sauce (you can find this in the Asian food aisle)
-Vegetable oil

1. Slice up about 2 or 3 cloves of garlic into thin-ish sheets and fry them over medium heat with vegetable oil.
2. Get a pot of boiling water, and boil the vegetables and shrimp for about 5 minutes.
3. Drain the vegetables and shrimp, add them to the skillet with your garlic, and continue frying them.
4. Add some oyster sauce (a little bit at a time or else it’ll end up really salty!) and keep frying.
5. Enjoy!

Anyway, here is the big reveal…

I really like this recipe because it’s so easy and it’s super versatile as well. Have some carrots laying around? Add them to the mix! Don’t  have broccoli? Any green veggies will do! And yes, that is an Oprah magazine under my plate. I need to get around to cleaning my kitchen. Eventually. 🙂
