  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or preferably overnight.
  • 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.
  • Serve with broccoli, mushrooms, and quinoa. Drizzle reserved marinade over top.
