Black-Bean Shrimp with Chinese Broccoli
['3/4 cup homemade chicken broth (reserved from winter melon soup ) or store-bought chicken broth (reduced-sodium if canned)', '3 tablespoons Chinese rice wine (preferably Shaoxing) or medium-dry Sherry', '3 teaspoons light soy sauce (preferably Pearl River Bridge brand)', '2 teaspoons cornstarch', '1 teaspoon sugar', '1/4 teaspoon salt', '1 1/2 lb gai lan (Chinese broccoli)', '1 1/2 lb large shrimp in shell (21 to 25 per lb), peeled and deveined', '1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil', '1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into very thin matchsticks', '2 tablespoons fermented black beans, rinsed and chopped', '2 garlic cloves, minced', '1/2 fresh jalapeño chile (including seeds), or to taste, cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices', '1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil', 'a well-seasoned 14-inch flat-bottomed wok']
Stir together broth, rice wine, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved.
Remove any bruised or withered outer leaves from gai lan, then trim and peel stalks, halving thick ones lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 2 1/2-inch pieces, separating leafy parts from thick stems.
Cook stems in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add leafy parts and cook until all of gai lan is just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well, then transfer to a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Transfer to a large dish and keep warm, loosely covered with foil.
Pat shrimp dry. Heat wok over high heat until a drop of water vaporizes instantly. Pour peanut oil around side of wok, then tilt wok to swirl oil, coating side. When oil just begins to smoke, add ginger and stir-fry 5 seconds. Add black beans, garlic, and jalapeño and stir-fry 1 minute. Working quickly, add shrimp, spreading in 1 layer on bottom and side of wok. Cook, undisturbed, 3 minutes, then stir-fry until shrimp are just pink on both sides, about 1 minute more. Stir broth mixture, then add to shrimp and bring to a boil. Boil, stirring, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle with sesame oil, then stir to combine.
Pour shrimp and sauce over gai lan.
