Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry with Lime Rice

I love steamed rice. In contrast, Jeff does not love rice due to eating said starch during his four years of teaching (and eating) in South Korea. To my surprise though, he picked up a bag of rice at the store and was enthusiastic about trying it again. This is a simple sauté over steamed rice flavored with lime zest, and it got Jeff’s stamp of approval. I hope it gets yours as well!
