1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water

How to make Easy One Pan Honey Garlic Shrimp

Step 1: Combine the honey, garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, water, and cornstarch in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 2: Add the olive oil to a hot large skillet. Add the shrimp, toss them in the olive oil, and cook over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes per side until pink. Note that shrimp without tails and shells cooks faster than shrimp with tails and shells.

Step 3: To the skillet, pour in the honey garlic sauce mixture and toss to coat the shrimp. Continue to cook until the sauce has thickened and is sticky.

Step 4: Remove from the heat when done and serve the shrimp over rice with steamed veggies on the side. If desired, garnish with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
