Cooking Tools Required

Measuring cups and spoons, Sharp Knives, Top Stove, Wok


  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp shelled and deveined for 10 servings: 21-25 preferably

Marinade for shrimp:

  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoon fresh ginger finely chopped
  • 4 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1 yellow onion medium, sliced lengthwise into strips about ¼ inch thick
  • 1 cup broccoli florets blanched
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced lengthwise into strips about ¼ inch thick
  • 2 stalk celery cut diagonally into pieces about 1 inch in length
  • 3 green onion cut into 2 inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce or more to taste


  • Place the shrimp in a medium bowl. Add the marinade ingredients and mix thoroughly. Let marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Blanch broccoli by placing florets in a large saute pan or wok and adding 1/4 cup water. Turn heat to high and steam for several minutes. Remove florets and reserve. Dump out any remaining water.
  • Heat large sauté pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add half the coconut oil. Carefully place shrimp in pan, spreading them out. Cook without stirring for a minute or so, then stir-fry until shrimp is 80 percent done, about 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • To the same pan add the remaining oil. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for a minute or just until garlic is golden.
  • Add all the vegetables, including the broccoli, to the pan and stir-fry for a minute or two. Add the cooked reserved shrimp, mixing well to combine. Stir-fry for several minutes more, then add the soy sauce. Adjust seasonings. Vegetables should be slightly crisp, not limp and shrimp should be cooked through.
