  1. Preparation:
    Heat water in a large pot, adding a dash of salt, if desired. Add angel hair and cook until al dente. Drain well. Heat oils in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add broccoli, mushrooms, shrimp, garlic and ginger. Saute for three to four minutes or until the shrimp begins to turn pink. Transfer vegetables and shrimp to a bowl or plate. Add chicken broth, sherry, oyster sauce, and cornstarch mixture to skillet and cook until thickened, just a few minutes. Meanwhile, place equal portions of cooked pasta on plates, top with shrimp and vegetables and pour thickened sauce over both. Top with cilantro, orange zest and pepper flakes.

    *Cooking note:
    To prevent lumps in the sauce, the cornstarch must be combined with cold water rather than hot.
