Method

  1. Heat 2.5cm of oil in a small saucepan until a small piece of bread sizzles. Add the shallots and garlic, and fry for about 2 mins or until golden. Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the broccoli and blanch for 5-10 mins until just cooked, then drain. Serve immediately on a large platter drizzled with the hoisin sauce and sprinkled with the fried garlic and shallots.
