Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Small Pot
  • 1 Medium Pan
  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with 1½ cups of water and Jasmine rice to a boil over medium-high heat. Once water is boiling, reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Cover pot and cook until rice is tender, about 16-20 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside warm.

  • 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    While rice is cooking, thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Trim the tough ends from broccolini. Mince garlic. Slice green onions on the bias. Rinse shrimp and pat dry.

  • 3

    Start the Sauce

    Warm a medium pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tsp. olive oil, minced garlic, and sliced green onion (reserving a bit for garnish). Cook until aromatic, about 1-2 minutes.

  • 4

    Sauté the Shrimp and Broccolini

    Add shrimp to the pan with the garlic and green onions and sauté, stirring occasionally until shrimp begin to color on both sides, about 2 minutes. Add cooking wine and broccolini to the pan. In a small mixing bowl, mix the lobster base with 1 cup of water. Add mixture to the pan and bring to a simmer.

  • 5

    Finish the Sauce

    While waiting for ingredients in pan to simmer, mix 1 Tbsp. of water with the 1 Tbsp. cornstarch in a small mixing bowl. This mixture is called a "slurry" and will thicken the sauce. Add the slurry to the sauce and stir to combine. Remove pan from heat and gently fold in liquid egg, further enriching and thickening the sauce. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Plate the Dish

    Scoop a portion of Jasmine rice into a bowl. Ladle 7 shrimp, an even serving of broccolini, and the sauce over and around the rice. Garnish with Sambal to taste and the reserved green onion.
