Ingredients:

    2 large Idaho Potatoes
    1 cup fresh broccoli florets
    1 green onion, thinly sliced
    3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce

    2 tsp cornstarch

    See microwave directions.

Microwave Directions:

    Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Wrap each potato in a microwave-safe paper towel; arrange potatoes 1 inch apart.

    Microwave at HIGH 6 to 8 minutes, turning and rearranging once, let stand 2 minutes. With a fork, pierce the skin in the form of a cross. Press the ends of the potato toward the center, lifting and fluffing the mat of the potato.

    Combine broccoli and onion in a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate; cover with microwaveable cover or plastic wrap and microwave at HIGH 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

    Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch in a 4-cup glass measure, microwave, uncovered, at HIGH 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

    Pour sauce over broccoli; stir in cooked shrimp and pimiento. Spoon mixture over potatoes.
