Shrimp and broccoli sautéed in a flavorful sauce made of coconut aminos, garlic, ginger and chili infused honey makes for the perfect sweet and spicy dinner idea when you are craving takeout but want to eat healthy.
Chinese takeout is one of life’s simple pleasures if you ask me. I love it so much. But what I also love, not feeling like crap after I eat it. That is where this hot honey garlic shrimp steps in! This gives you all the flavors of your favorite Chinese dish, but it is made with healthy ingredients that will satisfy you without weighing you down.
Ingredients for Hot Honey Garlic Shrimp Stir Fry:
- Shrimp – I used a 12 oz precooked/frozen medium bag of shrimp from Aldi
- Hot honey – Mike’s hot honey is my favorite invention in this world. It is chili infused honey. If you don’t want to go out and get it though, you can use regular honey and add some cayenne for a kick, or if you don’t want the spicy aspect just use regular honey!
- Corn starch – this thickens the sauce so it actually sticks to everything and doesn’t just run off and leave you with no flavor. If you don’t like using corn starch, you can swap this for arrowroot.
- Broccoli – these are our veggies! You can always add others or swap for something you like better if broccoli isn’t your jam though.
- Coconut aminos – I love using this as a gluten/soy free alternative to soy sauce. If you don’t care about those things, you can totally just use soy sauce. Or if you are gluten free, tamari is a great option too.
- Spices – we use garlic and ginger to add some great Asian flavor to the dish
- Water – to add volume to the sauce
Tips for the Perfect Hot Honey Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli!
- Don’t skip the cornstarch. It will thicken the sauce. Without that it will be kind of runny and won’t stay on your food as well and make it flavorful! I provide a swap up above if you don’t love using corn starch.
- Serve with rice or quinoa if you want to add a carb to the meal!
- If you aren’t using pre-cooked shrimp make sure you cook that beforehand 😉
