I love Sunday dinner time but since my younger daughter, Yanah’s volleyball season is ongoing, I have to cook something quick and easy. I found this recipe online and change it a little bit by adding my own ingredients. I just can’t help it, to make the recipe my own, I have to add my own touch. For instance, I use ¼ of orange juice instead of water. I also add ginger and cayenne pepper, we love spice and lots of flavor.
Honey Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry
1 ½ lbs. large shrimp peeled and deveined
2 cups broccoli florets
2 tsp Olive oil
3 cloves garlic minced
Zest of an orange
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup water
3 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp ginger
Salt, pepper, pepper flakes,
Season the shrimp with salt, pepper, pepper flakes, and the orange zest let it rest.
In a pan, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat
Add the broccoli and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Remove the broccoli from the pan; place it on a plate and cover to keep warm.
Return pan to heat, add the remaining oil, add the garlic, ginger, then add the shrimp, cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pink and opaque. Then add the broccoli back into the pan.
In a bowl, whisk together the water, honey and soy sauce. Pour that mixture over the shrimp and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds.
In another small bowl, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water. Add to pan and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
Hope you like this recipe and remember to share your thoughts with me.

Thank you, Madison, it was indeed yummy.
That looks amazing! I’m a huge shrimp fan, and the honey and garlic just make it a win win!
I am huge seafood fan, Lois.
Yummy! This looks good. We love shrimp.
So do we, particularly me, I mostly eat seafood.
This looks so yummy. But we don’t eat shrimp so I may have to substitute it. Definitely will try it out. Thanks for the tips.
Sorry, Regina, I am a shrimp lover. If you eat chicken, you can always try with it.
This looks delicious! I wouldn’t have thought about switching the water fo orange juice. But I am the same that I make every recipe my own as I make it!
Me too, Stephanie, that makes me feel like a Chef at the moment.
using orange juice instead of water is never something I would have thought to do. What a brilliant idea! I love shrimp, it’s one of my favorites.
Yes Angela, as I was putting the zest, I decided to go bold for flavor and add the juice also.
Oh YUM!! I struggle with fish dishes so much – bookmarking for later! And the way you did the rice is fab! X
Thank you, Kat.
Ooh! That looks delicious! I just love that you molded the rice. I bet all that orange flavor makes a wonderful sauce. I’m saving this to my big oven account and gonna have it for dinner next week.
Let me know how it turns out, Alicia.
Ooh. This looks awesome. I definitely want to try this recipe out. I love shrimp recipes.

Yumm I love a good stir fry and I actually haven’t made one in a while. I love how you stuck the rice together in a little mound.
Thank you, Nikki.
Yum! This looks and sounds delicious. Always love a good stir fry
We can never go wrong with a good stir-fry, Arielle.
I love how you turned the recipe into your own. It creates a different taste. It’s looks so beautiful like something from a restaurant. I can’t wait to make my own
That’s why I like to cook more than bake, Ifeoluwa, I always like to change recipes, but it’s a little bit harder with baking for me.
I am in love with the presentation and table decor. It is lovely and looks so beautiful. I am a vegetarian person will show your post to my husband and will make this dish for him.
Thank you, Jiya, I hope he loves it.
Love shrimp!! This recipe sounds delicious!! Love how you made the recipe your own, recipes are just guidelines anyways not rules set in stone!
I agree with you, Leah. I am a shrimp lover as well.
Oh my! This looks amazing!
Thank you, Angel.
I am totally going to have to give this recipe to my hubby for the next time I am away and he’s solo-parenting! Shrimp and broccoli are two of the foods I don’t eat (though I admit this recipe looks yummy), so as soon as I leave town, he and the girls eat them at least once a day b/c they love them!
I hope they like it, Flossie.
This looks and sounds so good. I love meals with shrimp. I look forward to giving this a try!
Give it a try and let me know, Brittany.
First, beautiful table setting!
Second, wow that looks yummy!
Thank you so much, Christina.
I love stir fry! Definitely going to try this this weekend.

This sounds simple and so delicious! I do love shrimp so much!
