Recipe by mersaydees
This is based on a recipe from a Gourmet magazine pamphlet titled "Every Day Meals". The intro to the recipe states, "If you have regular broccoli on hand, you could use the florets as a substitute for the Broccolini (a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale), though the flavor will be somewhat different. Round out this stir-fry with cooked white rice."

- 3⁄4 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined (size 15)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 bunch Broccolini, cut into 1/4-inch-thick diagonal slices (8 ounces)
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
