    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then quarter lengthwise. Combine the broccoli florets and quartered peppers in a bowl. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy glaze, vinegar, 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    In a medium pot, combine the rice, chopped garlic, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared broccoli and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until softened. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the water has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails, if desired). Season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through.
