Almost all my sauce is inside florets and around shrimps. I like it because broccoli florets taste delicious with the quite strong garlic flavor of the sauce.

I was short of chicken broth, and things like clam juice are hard to win around me, so I made the stock of shrimps' items. It doesn't make a significant difference, I suppose. Almost all my sauce is inside florets and around shrimps. I like it because broccoli florets taste delicious with the quite strong garlic flavor of the sauce. Despite the fact I had this dish without rice, I decided to share a photo, because this dish is really tasteful. Thanks.
