This is honey garlic shrimp is one of my favorite Asian dishes to make because it’s super easy to put together in and is ready in no time. Serve it on sticky white rice or with a side of noodles. If you’re on a low-carb diet, try serving it with a side of veggies, spiralized zucchini noodles, or cauliflower rice.
The shrimp is cooked in a sticky honey garlic sauce that is out of this world.
This yummy sauce is made with garlic, ginger, honey and soy sauce. It’s simple and pretty easy to balance the sweetness and saltness. It can also be used on chicken, beef, or fish.
Honey garlic butter shrimp is quick and easy and a guaranteed hit!
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed if desired
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups chopped broccoli
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- salt pepper
- In a small bowl add the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper and mix until combined.
- Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl and add 1/3 of the sauce. Toss and marinade 30 minutes.
- Whisk in the cornstarch to the reserved marinade and set aside.
- Heat a skillet (I use cast iron) or wok on high heat, add olive oil and broccoli, salt and pepper and cook 5-6 minutes just until soft. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add the butter to the skillet and add shrimp discarding and marinade. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes each side.
- Add in the reserved sauce and bring to a simmer. Add in the broccoli and toss until heated through.
- Serve with white rice or pasta.
- Garnish with green onions if desired.
I leave the shrimp tails on. It adds more flavor and looks prettier. But you can remove them if you want.
