Shrimp +Tomato + Basil Stir Fry

A SUPER fresh, aromatic, and TOTALLY GORGEOUS meal ready in just minutes!

Use up those sweet ripe cherry tomatoes and fresh fragrant basil sitting in your kitchen!

Serving suggestions:

We served this meal alongside perfectly cooked quinoa and roasted broccoli.

If you want to boost the nutrition a bit, go ahead and add in a few handfuls of baby spinach along with the fresh basil right into your pan.

makes 4 servings


  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 cups ripe cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves (about 1 bunch)
  • 1 Tbsp olive or avocado oil


For the marinade/stir fry sauce:

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 Tbsps favorite hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsps coconut aminos, Bragg’s liquid aminos, or low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • a pinch of sea salt to taste


In a medium-sized bowl or jar whisk all marinade/stir-fry sauce ingredients together. Reserve half of this sauce in a small container for later use.

Place the shrimp in a bowl with half of your marinade and toss gently to coat well. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat.Drain shrimp and discard that part of the marinade. Add your shrimp to the hot pan, and cook, turning once, until pink and nicely charred, about 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan, and set shrimp aside. Add in the tomatoes and stir until they just begin to burst, 2-3 minutes. Return shrimp to the pan, together with basil leaves and pour in the remaining, untouched sauce. Toss everything gently until basil is wilted. Serve immediately and enjoy!
