Skip takeout tonight, and create a (much tastier + healthier) 10 minute version in your own kitchen!
This quick meal is a family favorite, and Mom and Dad favorite for several reasons:
It’s REALLY FAST and SIMPLE to throw together, since shrimp cook up quicker than just about any protein!
This Honey Garlic Sauce is PERFECTION and will totally satisfy those salty, tangy cravings.
Use what you have on hand. Fresh or powdered garlic and ginger work just as well here, so no need to run to the store.
This Honey Garlic Shrimp recipe makes for a good meal prep ahead idea, so double up that dinner batch, and then dish up some for lunch the next few days! They stay great refrigerated in sealed containers for up to 3 days.
I love serving these shrimp with steamed broccoli and a side of perfectly cooked brown rice.
➡️ What’s the deal with coconut aminos?!
Several months ago we held an informal “taste-off” (taste testing) with a few CFC staffers in my kitchen. This group included our videographer who is a HUGE “foodie” and will tell you himself that he’s not always making the healthiest choices.
Back to the taste test:
I served each person 3 small bowls of brown rice sprinkled with:
Low Sodium Soy Sauce
Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
The UNANIMOUS win for best taste was Coconut Aminos! Which is AWESOME because I believe coconut aminos to be the healthiest of the bunch if you’re looking to avoid soy products and keep sodium a bit lower.
Second place was a TIE between the remaining two options.
If you haven’t tried coconut aminos you’re truly missing out!
Makes 4 servings
- 1 Tbsp butter/ghee, or unrefined coconut oil
- 1- 1/2 lbs medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
- sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 chopped green onions, or chives
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
Honey garlic sauce:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos, or Bragg’s liquid aminos, or low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup broth of choice, I used vegetable broth
- 1 tsp garlic powder, or 4 cloves fresh minced garlic
- 1 tsp ginger powder, or 1 Tablespoon fresh ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp gluten-free flour, or Arrowroot powder
In a small bowl whisk all of your honey garlic sauce ingredients together.
Melt butter/ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in raw shrimp and season with a tiny pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Cook for 2 minutes, or just until shrimp turn pink and are no longer opaque.
Pour sauce over your shrimp, then reduce the heat to Low.
Simmer and frequently stir for about 3 minutes, or just until sauce thickens.
Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds and enjoy!
Serve alongside steamed broccoli and cooked brown rice.
