Honey Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli
½ cup honey
½ cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
3 tablespoons minced garlic
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed if desired
8 tablespoon butter
3 cups chopped broccoli
¼ cup olive oil
kosher salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl add the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper, and mix until combined.
Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl and add 1/3 of the sauce. Toss and marinate for 30 minutes.
Whisk in the cornstarch to the reserved marinade and set aside.
Heat a skillet (I use cast iron) or wok on high heat, add olive oil and broccoli, salt and pepper and cook 5-6 minutes just until soft. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add the butter to the skillet and add shrimp discarding any marinade. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes on each side.
Add in the reserved sauce and bring to a simmer. Add in the broccoli and toss until heated through. Serve with white rice or pasta. Garnish with green onions if desired. 4 Servings.
