1 -In a small bowl add the honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper, and mix until combined.

2- Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl and add 1/3 of the sauce. Toss and marinate for 30 minutes.

3- Whisk in the cornstarch to the reserved marinade and set aside.

4- Heat a skillet (I use cast iron) or wok on high heat, add olive oil and broccoli, salt and pepper and cook 5-6 minutes just until soft. Remove from pan and set aside.

5- Add the butter to the skillet and add shrimp discarding any marinade. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes on each side.

6- Add in the reserved sauce and bring to a simmer. Add in the broccoli and toss until heated through.

7- Serve with white rice or pasta.

8- Garnish with green onions if desired.


I leave the shrimp tails on. It adds more flavor and looks prettier. But you can remove them if you want.
