HONEY GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP & BROCCOLI


HONEY GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP & BROCCOLI


INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed if desired
2 tablespoon butter

2 cups chopped broccoli
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt pepper

INSTRUCTIONS
In a small bowl add the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper and mix until combined.
Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl and add 1/3 of the sauce. Toss and marinade 30 minutes.

Whisk in the cornstarch to the reserved marinade and set aside.
Heat a skillet (I use cast iron) or wok on high heat, add olive oil and broccoli, salt and pepper and cook 5-6 minutes just until soft. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add the butter to the skillet and add shrimp discarding and marinade. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes each side.

Add in the reserved sauce and bring to a simmer. Add in the broccoli and toss until heated through.
Serve with white rice or pasta.
Garnish with green onions if desired.

NOTES

I leave the shrimp tails on. It adds more flavor and looks prettier. But you can remove them if you want.
