Cook the rice according to the package directions. Stir in the sesame seeds.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring often, until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate; reserve the skillet.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the reserved skillet. Add the scallions, garlic, ginger, and chili. Cook, stirring often, until the scallions are tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the broccolini and ½ cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccolini is crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
