  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 500 grams medium uncooked shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Green onion chopped for garnishing


  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients: honey, soy sauce, minced garlic and minced ginger. Add the shrimp in a ziplock bag, and pour over half of the marinade, while reserving the rest.
  • Marinate for 10 minutes or overnight.
  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and place the shrimp in the skillet, discarding the leftover marinade. Cook the shrimp on each side for about 45 seconds. When you flip over the shrimp, add the reserved marinade and cook for an addition 1-2 minutes. It is very important to not overcook the shrimp, so make sure you don't cook it for too long!
  • Serve immediately with rice and steamed broccoli.
