In a wok or large, deep skillet over medium high heat, melt butter with sesame oil. Pour in chopped broccoli and diced bell pepper, onion and zucchini. Cook and stir 4-5 minutes.
Stir in shrimp. Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes.
Pour sauce over the top and stir well to evenly distribute. Cook and stir for another minute or two.
