Shrimp and Broccoli Stir-fry

Light, Healthy, Zesty, and Delicous!
This stir-fry is a favorite at our house.
I have been making this recipe for years, I don't remember where I got the recipe from but it has never failed me.
If you are not a shrimp fan, you can also substitute the shrimp for chicken.

-2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
-2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
-2 teaspoons cornstarch

-1 Tablespoon of peeled and minced fresh ginger OR 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1 pound of peeled and deveined large shrimp
-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1 cup of sliced onion

1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, mix together with a wisk.

2. Heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic to pan, stir-fry for 30 seconds. Sprinkle shrimp with salt, add shrimp to pan and stir-fry 3 minutes or until done. Remove shrimp mixture from pan.
