Shrimps with Spinach & Broccoli

Going "green and healthy" should be the current mantra in every home. I guess the rationale for doing so need not be elaborated. With the fast-paced lifestyles we all live today, in fact, it's almost beyond necessary. This has been the clamor in the food business anywhere in the world since the increase in rate in the occurence of hypertension, obesity and other unwanted diseases due to poor eating habits, was made known. Hence, it's definitely a good breather if we can have something on the dining table sans the element of guilty pleasure.
It's for that reason that this dish came out through our dining table. Think of something that can be prepared as easy as counting one, two and three. Preparing this dish is just as simple as that really.
Ingredients:
300 grams medium sized prawns (trimmed)
2 - 3 tbsps minced garlic
1/2 cup oyster sauce dissolved in 1 cup water
2 tbsps olive oil
1 big stalk of broccoli flower (cut into individual florets)
1 pack of spinach (cut into 2 inches length)
Preparation:
1. Blanch spinach and broccoli flowers in boiling water for 1 minute. Immediately soak in iced water while preparing the sauce.
2. Add oil in a heated wok. Saute garlic until fragrant. Add in shrimps and saute until they turn pink. Add oyster sauce mixture and stir well. Allow to simmer for 2 - 3 minutes.
3. Drain the blanched vegetables and transfer to a serving plate. Pour over the sauted shrimps with oyster sauce.

Oh my. I'm starving. When I see this food, I feel more hungrier. I love shrimp, but I get itchiness after it. :(
