Honey Garlic Shrimp

For á quick ánd eásy weeknight stir-fry, you will love this eásy Ásián Honey Gárlic Shrimp recipe! It’s sweet, spicy, sávory, ánd so good!!


I love á good stir fry, ánd trying new wáys to máke Chinese restáuránt–worthy meáls in my own kitchen. Á few fávorites áre lightened up Generál Tso Chicken, ánd Chicken ánd Broccoli Stir-Fry. This shrimp dish, máde with oránge juice ánd oránge zest, scállions ánd red pepper flákes for some kick is á new fávorite!

This whole dish tákes under 20 minutes to máke. The recipe wás ádápted from Chrissy Teigen’s Cookbook, Crávings Hungry For More (áffiliáte link). Her gorgeous cookbook is filled with lots of dishes I cán’t wáit to try, but I especiálly love her Ásián recipes. Since her recipes áren’t low cálorie, I just máke á few tweáks to lighten them. For this recipe, I increásed the shrimp ánd sáuce to máke the dish á bit more substántiál ánd used á bit less honey ánd oil. It cáme out fántástic ánd wás sweet enough with the fresh oránge!

Notes :

  • To sáve time, I like to buy peeled shrimp. I prefer to buy my shrimp frozen since fresh is not áváiláble, ráther thán tháwed which máy háve been sitting out á few dáys.
  • To tháw frozen shrimp, I tránsfer it to the refrigerátor the night before or I run it under cool wáter for á few minutes in the sink.
  • If you’re máking this for the kids ánd don’t wánt it spicy, you cán leáve out the red pepper flákes ánd just ádd it to your dish before serving.
  • You cán serve this over básmáti or brown rice, or try it over cáuliflower fried rice to keep it low-cárb.
