Spicy Honey Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli Skillet
This 30-minute recipe is packed with flavor and is substantial enough to be served on its own for a satisfying one-skillet dish, or it can be served over cooked rice for a more substantial meal.
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp sugar-free chili garlic sauce*
- 2-3 large cloves garlic, finely minced
- ¼ cup tamari or coconut aminos
- 3 tsp honey, preferably local
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 1 medium red or orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced thin
- 3 cup fresh broccoli florets, chopped small**
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp water
Optional, to Serve:
- White sesame seeds and/or crushed red pepper flakes
- **Can use frozen broccoli that has been thawed, but it will not be as crisp tender after cooking.
- Prepare the sauce by whisking all ingredients together in a large bowl until combined. Set aside.
- Add one tablespoon olive oil to a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and broccoli and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Quickly stir fry the vegetables just until crisp tender and nicely browned, approximately 3-4 minutes. Transfer vegetables to a bowl and set aside.
- Reduce heat to medium and add remaining olive oil to skillet. Add shrimp to the skillet and spread into a single layer without overcrowding. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring once, just until the shrimp is opaque and starts to curl, approximately 2 minutes. Do not overcook. Transfer shrimp to the bowl with sautéed vegetables. Set aside.
- Create a slurry by combining the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl. Add the sauce and the slurry to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens and clings to a spoon, approximately 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and pour the shrimp and sautéed vegetables into the skillet. Carefully toss to combine and garnish with sesame seeds and/or crushed red pepper flakes, if desired, before serving. Enjoy!
