Honey Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry


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.

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.

Shrimp, peeled, deveined with salt, pepper, orange zest

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.

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and a nurse. Most importantly, I am passionate about life. I always give my best to anything that I decide to do. I believe taking a risk to fulfill your dream can be rewarding.


  1. 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.

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
