Ideas And Tips:
• Fresh shrimp or prawns can also be used in this recipe. However, frozen shrimp is more inexpensive than fresh ones. You will be saving more if you buy frozen shrimp with their shells on, but you need to do some work to get the shells out.
• Aside from broccoli florets, you can also get some frozen mixed vegetables to add to this dish. You can also mix these frozen vegetables to other dishes like fried fish, noodles, or on their own with a little butter and salt.
