Sweet and Sour Shrimp and Broccoli

I love eating out. I’ll be honest, it’s my favorite hobby. I love trying new foods and not having to clean dishes up afterwards! It’s the best. However, it’s expensive and usually unhealthy. So I decided to make one of my favorite Chinese (Americanized) dishes in my own home, and I’ll be honest, this version tastes better than the restaurant and it doesn’t leave me feeling sick and unhealthy!

  • 2 heads of broccoli (steamed)
  • 2 lbs shrimp
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup sweet and sour sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Steam broccoli as preferred. I like to steam mine in the steerable bags you buy at the grocery store.
  2. Cook shrimp according to package direction. I like to saute mine in a pan so they get a little more crisp.
  3. In a ban, combine the steamed broccoli, sauted shrimp, and minced garlic until the garlic begins to get a little more clear.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper for taste.
  5. Add the sweet and sour sauce to the pan and continue sauteing until fully combined and all the flavors are mixed.
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds for garnish.
  7. Enjoy warm.
