  • ¼ cup water
  • 1¼ pound broccoli florets, broken into bite-sized pieces

Heat a large, nonstick skillet, over high heat until hot and add oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add shrimp and cook 1½ - 2 minutes, stirring constantly until just slightly undercooked. Remove from heat and set aside.

Add ¼ cup water and broccoli to hot skillet. Cover and steam approximately 2 minutes, until just tender. Pour off excess water, if any remains.

Return shrimp to skillet, along with chili-garlic sauce and bamboo shoots and stir-fry until all ingredients are coated in sauce and piping hot. Serve immediately.
