Honey Garlic Glazed Shrimp

About This Recipe:

This recipe is all about the sauce, and it can be used on seafood, chicken, vegetables, etc. If you like the sweet and tangy flavor of Chinese sesame chicken, you will love this equally sticky, and yummy sauce. I like to serve this as a little rice bowl with white rice, roasted broccoli, and of course, plenty of shrimp and sauce. This dish is definitely Asian fusion at it’s finest (and in under 30 minutes!)


Ingredients (4 servings)

-1.25 lbs large shrimp
-2 scallions, finely sliced
-Sesame seeds, for garnishing
-4 cups cooked white rice
Optional side: roasted broccoli
-Olive oil
-Salt and pepper

Honey Garlic Sauce
-2 tbls butter
-6 garlic cloves, minced
-1/4 cup honey
-1/2 cup water
-2 tbls soy sauce
-1 tbl rice wine vinegar
-1 tbl garlic chili sauce

Instructions (25 minutes)

1. In a small sauce pot over medium high heat, melt the butter and then add in the minced garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes until browned.
2. Add in the honey, water, soy sauce, and vinegar, and bring to a boil. Continue reducing the sauce until it becomes thick with a glaze like consistency (about 5 minutes.) Stir in the chili garlic sauce.
3. While the sauce is reducing, heat up olive oil in a pan over medium heat, and sear the shrimp for about 2 minutes per side until fully cooked.
4. Add the sauce to the pan and coat all of the shrimp. Garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds, and serve with rice and broccoli.
