  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water

  • In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, water, honey, sriracha, garlic, red crushed pepper, and corn starch.
  • Add the broccoli to a skillet with some oil and cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes covered, stirring every minute so the broccoli doesn't stick.
  • Remove the broccoli from the skillet and set aside. Add more oil to the skillet and add the shrimp. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper on one side.
  • Add the butter to the shrimp and stir it while the butter melts. Once the butter melts, add the broccoli and honey soy mixture to the skillet. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Serve with steam rice if desired and enjoy!


If you're cooking for a large crowd double the sauce recipe. 
If you don't want it spicy, omit the red crushed pepper and sriracha.
