    1       lb           Broccoli
    2                    Scallions, thinly sliced
      1/2                Red bell pepper, julienned

                         -----DRESSING-----
      1/4   c            Rice vinegar
    1 1/2   tb           Sugar
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Finely chopped fresh ginger
    2       tb           Vegetable oil
      1/2   ts           Sesame oil
                         Freshly ground pepper
                         -- to taste
                         -----GARNISH-----
    2       tb           Toasted sesame seeds
 
   Cut the broccoli florests from their stems and
   separate into small clusters.  Peel the stems,
   removing strings; skin.  Cut into julienne strips.
   
   Bring 2 quarts of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add
   broccoli florets and stems and cook just until tender
   crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain and plunge into ice
   water.  When chilled, drain thoroughly and put in a
   bowl. Add scallions, bell pepper and shrimp.
   
   To make the dressing, combine all ingredients,
   whisking in oil until well blended.  Toss with
   broccoli mixture and marinate for 1 to 2 hours. Just
   before serving, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
   
   Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
