  • 1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound broccoli crowns, large stems removed, divided into florets
  • 1 pound large shrimp (about 24), cleaned, peeled, tails on

Step 1Heat the olive oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the mustard seeds and cook until they pop, about 30 seconds.

Step 2Add the green onions and garlic and stir for a few seconds. Add the mustard, lemon juice, salt and cayenne and stir until smooth, then stir in 2 tablespoons water.

Step 3Add the broccoli florets. Cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes, then add the shrimp. Cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until the broccoli is crisp-tender and the shrimp are just done.

Note: From Ismail Merchant.
