Shrimp and Broccoli Stir-fry

………….Shrimp and broccoli stir-fry…………….This is a quick and easy recipe that I think everybody can cook. It is a vegetable dish I loved to pair every time I cook fried or roast dishes such as traditional roast pork or crispy pata and many more. I will tell you a little story about this dish, My wife made this when we had a visitor at home, to complete the line up of menu, we usually have one “saucy dish or casserole” such as kalderetang bakaone fried dish and one vegetable dish. Believe it or not, it so happen that our guest that time does not or can not eat shrimp and tomato base casserole. (hello tita, starring ka dito sa kwento ko ha..LOL). So it ended up eating her own “pot luck” . How about you guys? are you allergic of some other food? If you ask me, I hate eating okra and “saluyot” – it’s a kind of vegetable ingredient that is very sticky in texture when its cooked………………………………..Did you know that broccoli is helpful in repairing skin damage thanks to the glucoraphanin it contains which helps the skin to detoxify and repair itself. And also, broccoli bolsters the immune system with a large dose of beta-carotene. Trace minerals, such as zinc and selenium, further act to strengthen immune defense actions……
