  1. In a medium bowl, mix together hoisin sauce, vinegar, water, cornstarch and red pepper flakes. Add shrimp and stir to coat shrimp well. Cover and reserve in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
  2. If necessary, cut broccoli florets into uniform size pieces.
  3. Heat a wok or large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and heat until hot, but not smoking.
  4. Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant, about 20 seconds.
  5. Add vegetables and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add reserved shrimp mixture and continue to stir-fry until shrimp turns opaque throughout and vegetables are tender-crisp, an additional 5-6 minutes. Serve immediately with hot rice.
