Honey garlic butter shrimp is quick and easy and a guaranteed hit!



  1. 1/2 cup honey
  2. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  3. 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  4. 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  5. 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  7. 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed if desired
  8. 2 tablespoon butter
  9. 2 cups chopped broccoli
  10. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  11. 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.
