WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE THIS HONEY GARLIC SHRIMP STIR-FRY

- The delicious honey garlic sauce makes juicy shrimp
- Has become the most popular recipe in my house
- Easy dinner idea – Change things up using chicken, tofu, or beef instead of shrimp
You’ll find full detailed instructions with exact measurements of all ingredients in the recipe card below.
Shrimp – For the best results make sure the shrimp you are using are raw shrimp (blue in color! not pink!) You can also use fresh shrimp instead of frozen shrimp. I prefer to use large frozen shrimp in this recipe. The jumbo shrimp makes it feel like less food.
Bell Peppers – I use mixed bell peppers in this recipe- you can use any color you have on hand, I just like the extra color a mix of red, orange and yellow add to this dish.
Soy Sauce – I’ve made this both with low sodium soy sauce and coconut aminos. If you want a little more sweetness in this dish and to get the sodium a little bit lower use coconut aminos.
Red Onions – If you want to make this easy recipe even easier, you can buy these pre chopped from the grocery store.
Baby Bella Mushrooms – I used baby bella mushrooms because that’s what I had on hand, I’m sure any other mushroom would be fine to use.
Broccoli – Broccoli is one of my favorite fresh veggies because it doesn’t add much in terms of flavor but it does add volume.
Garlic – I use fresh chopped garlic but you can use chopped garlic from a jar or garlic paste in this recipe also.
Honey – I mean, it wouldn’t be honey garlic shrimp stir fry if I wasn’t using honey would it?
Smoked Paprika – This adds in a little heat to the shrimp. When I make this how I want I use 2 tsp’s of smoked paprika, When I make this how Jesse want’s I only use 1 tsp. The first time you make this recipe I suggest starting with 1 tsp then upping it the next time if you want more heat.
Cooked Plain Rice – I use long grain white rice and cook it in a rice cooker ahead of time. Cook rice your favorite way but make sure to wash your rice before cooking. It’ll remove all that excess starch and your rice will cook better. If you
Optional: Sesame Seeds and Green onion: I like to garnish meals with these, it’s a great way to make your food look great
