Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry

400g shrimps, peeled and deveined
1 large head broccoli, cut into florets
1 cup cashews
1 white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger paste
3 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
1 cup chicken stock
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp sugar
freshly ground black pepper
peanut oil
1. Prepare a pot of boiling water with 1 tbsp salt then add broccoli florets for 1 minute. Remove and drain broccoli then place in a bowl of cold water. This stops the cooking process and makes the vegetables crisp and vibrant.
2. Heat peanut oil in a wok then add shrimp, garlic, ginger and onions, stir fry until shrimps turn pink. Using a slotted spoon remove shrimps then set aside.
3. Add broccoli and cashews then stir fry for 30 seconds in high heat, mix chicken stock, Chinese cooking wine and cornstarch in a separate container until free of lumps then pour into the wok. Bring to a rapid boil until sauce thickens.
4. Add the shrimps back together with sesame oil and sugar, mix well then season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
