Stirfry Kailan (Chinese Broccoli) with Shrimp

Kailan is my favorite vegetable. In America, it is often called Chinese broccoli, but it really looks nothing like broccoli. I love the crunchy stem the most! Usually, kailan is steamed with oyster sauce, or stirfried with garlic. Here, we have added shrimp because my uncle just gave us some beautiful huge shrimps and those should be eaten as quickly as possible so as to maintain its freshness!

  • approximately 1/2 to 3/4 pound kailan (in America, you will find it as Chinese broccoli), cut into 2 inch sections
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3-4 oz fresh shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • In a heated pan, add oil and minced garlic. Fry until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Add shrimp, and fry until the shrimp is almost cooked.
  • Add kailan/Chinese broccoli and stirfry until cooked.
  • Serve and enjoy!
