Today I will show you a very simple and delicious recipe with shrimp, broccoli, and Sempio’s Hyangshin sauce. It takes less than 20 minutes, include preparation time, to make a meal from it. This turns into a nice one dish meal. The savory flavor of the Hyanshin sauce along with shrimp, broccoli, and hot peppers taste great. Try it someday.
Yield: 1 Serving
Short Korean Lesson
- SimJang (심장) = Heart
- Gan (간) = Liver (Human Anatomy)
- 2 Cups Broccoli (4 oz)
- 1 Tbsp Garlic
- ½ Tbsp Red Hot Pepper (Optional)
- ½ Tbsp Green Hot Pepper (Optional)
- ¼ Cup Green Onion
- 1½ Tbsp Grape Seed Oil (or Cooking Oil)
- 1 Tbsp Sempio Hyangshin Sauce for Stir-fry
- ½ Tbsp Sesame Seeds
For the Shrimp
- 20 Medium Sized Raw Shrimp (⅔ Cup or 5 oz)
- 1 tsp Cooking Wine (Optional)
- 2 Pinches Salt
- 2 Pinches Black Pepper
For the Noodles
- 2.5 oz Thin Noodles (Somyeon) (3 Cups Water + ¼ tsp Salt)
- ½ Tbsp Sesame Seeds
- ½ tsp Sesame Oil
Combine all the ingredients for the shrimp: 20 medium-sized raw shrimp (⅔ cup or 5 oz), 1 tsp cooking wine (optional), 2 pinches of salt, and 2 pinches of black pepper. Marinate it while you are preparing the other ingredients. You can substitute other kinds of meat or firm tofu. Also, start to boil about 3 cups of water for the noodles now to save time.
Cut 2 cups worth of broccoli into about 1-inch sized pieces. Cut ¼ cup worth of green onions into ½-inch pieces. Slice 1 Tbsp worth of garlic thinly. Cut ½ Tbsp worth of red hot pepper, and the same amount of green hot pepper, into ¼-inch pieces. If you cannot eat spicy food, you can skip the hot peppers.
Preheat a pan with ½ Tbsp of grape seed oil (or cooking oil). Add the garlic to the heated pan and fry for 10 seconds on medium-high.
Add the shrimp and broccoli to the pan.
Add 1 Tbsp of Sempio’s Hyangshin sauce for stir-fry and fry for 4 minutes on medium-high. We are having a giveaway contest for Hyangshin Sauce on my AerisKitchen4Sempio YouTube Channel this month. So if you want to try this sauce, please check out the video for the contest.
Put about an inched-size bundle of thin noodles (2.5 oz) into the boiling water along with ¼ tsp of salt. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on high, or until the noodles are cooked. If you don’t have Korean thin noodles, you can use angel hair spaghetti instead.
After the noodles are done cooking, quickly rinse the noodles in cold water twice and drain.
Mix all the ingredients for the noodles in a mixing bowl: the cooked thin (somen) noodles, ½ Tbsp sesame seeds, and ½ tsp sesame oil.
After the shrimp and broccoli are done cooking, add the green onions and hot peppers. Fry for another minute.
Turn off the heat and sprinkle ½ Tbsp of sesame seeds on top before serving.
Eat everything together. Yum … it is so delicious. I loved the combination of flavors. If you feel lazy to cook a complex meal, but still want something special to eat, then I highly recommend you try this recipe. Enjoy!
