- kosher salt
- 12 oz broccoli, cut into florets
- 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon orange zest
- 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 garlic clove, finely minced
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 scallion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
- Red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add broccoli and boil for 1 minutes. Drain and immediately place broccoli in a large bowl of ice water to stop it from cooking.
In a small bowl add orange juice, soy sauce, orange zest and cornstarch, whisking until cornstarch is dissolved.
Heat a non-stick wok or large deep skillet over high heat. Add sesame oil, scallions, garlic and ginger and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the sauce and broccoli and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, until the broccoli is crisp tender. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes (if using). Serve immediately.
