Orange Shrimp and Broccoli with Garlic Sesame Fried Rice

For the shrimp & broccoli:
1 and ½ pounds large shrimp
3 cups broccoli florets
1 cup of orange juice
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 and ½ tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon corn starch
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp of sliced green onions
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
For the fried rice:
2 cups Jasmine Rice

Cook rice according to directions. While the rice is cooking, cook broccoli. Place pan on medium high heat. Add the 2 tsp of vegetable oil; after the oil is hot add the shrimp in a single layer and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp until pink and opaque. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel and add the orange juice, soy sauce and sugar. Bring to a boil and cook until the mixture has reduced by half and is starting to turn syrupy. Mix 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 2 teaspoons of cold water and add the mixture to the pan. Boil until sauce has thickened. Pour the sauce over the shrimp and broccoli and cover with foil to keep warm. To make the fried rice heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute – be careful to not let the garlic burn. Add the rice, sesame oil and sesame seeds to the pan and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. To serve: place the rice on a platter and top with the shrimp and broccoli mixture. Garnish with the sliced green onions and 2 teaspoons of sesame seeds.
