by 247tasty

For a quick & healthy dinner idea, this 20-Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp is what you are looking for. It is very easy and quick to make. Super delish and savory. Best served with brown rice (drizzle the sauce over the rice) and vegetables, grill on skewers, or serve over salad. This recipe is unquestionably recommended especially for busy moms like me.


1/3 cup of honey
1/4 cup of soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)
1 Tbsp. jarred minced garlic or 2 teaspoons fresh*
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (optional)
1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 teaspoons of olive oil
chopped green onion for garnish (optional)

How to make Honey Garlic Shrimp

Step 1: In a medium bowl, whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.

Step 2: Use a large zipped-top bag or Tupperware to mix the shrimp and 1/2 of the marinade mixture. Place the marinated shrimp in the fridge for 15 minutes or up to 8-12 hours. For the leftover marinade, cover it and place it in the refrigerator.

Step 3: While allowing the shrimp to marinade, steam the broccoli and microwaved some quick brown rice.

Step 4: Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Pour some olive oil and heat. Place the shrimp without the marinade in the skillet and cook for about 45 seconds on each side or until pink. Pour the leftover marinade over the shrimp and continue to cook for 1 another 1 minute or until the shrimps are cooked through.

Step 5: Transfer the cooked shrimp with the marinade sauce on a serving plate. Garnish with green onions and serve. Enjoy!

Tips: When using a refrigerated jarred minced garlic, use only 1 tbsp. If garlic is freshly minced, use 2 teaspoons instead. As for the shrimp, you can remove the tail or leave it on (depends on your preference), what’s important is you use fresh shrimp (if possible, if not frozen shrimps are okay).
