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.
