Before starting, wash and dry all produce.
Bring 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a boil in a covered medium pot. Add rice and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot of boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 15-18 min.
While rice cooks, add 10 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a large pot. (NOTE: Use the same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Core, then cut peppers into 3/4-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels.
When water is boiling, add broccoli. Cook, until bright green, 1-2 min, then drain.
While broccoli cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add half the sesame oil, then shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp starts to turn pink, 1-2 min. (NOTE: The shrimp will finish cooking in the next step.) Transfer shrimp to a plate. Carefully wipe pan clean.
Heat the same pan over medium-high. Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions, peppers and garlic. Cook, stirring, until peppers have softened, 2-3 min. Season with salt. Add broccoli, soy sauce and sweet chili sauce. Cook, stirring, until sauce has slightly thickened, 1-2 min. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, until shrimp is cooked through, 1-2 min.** Drizzle remaining sesame oil over top.
Fluff rice with a fork, then divide between plates. Spoon shrimp and veggies over top.
