Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 lb medium shrimp (about 40 shrimp), shelled and cleaned
  • steamed broccoli
  • sauted mushrooms
  • cooked quinoa
Instructions
  1. Pour the honey, soy sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic, rice vinegar, and sesame oil into a small jar with a lid. Place the lid on and vigorously shake until all the ingredients are blended. You can also use a small whisk or fork to do this too.
  2. Place the shrimp in a bowl and pour half (or less) of the marinade over top. Stir around the shrimp until all the shrimp have been coated with the marinade.
  3. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or preferably overnight.
  4. Remove shrimp from the marinade (discard used marinade) and cook in a hot frying pan. You can use a little olive oil if needed. Cook on both sides until the shrimp is pink and opaque in the middle. This only takes about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Serve with broccoli, mushrooms, and quinoa. Drizzle reserved marinade over top.
