Asian Honey Garlic Shrimp
Updated: Jan 2
Asian influenced dishes are probably my favourite. There is no shortage of ingredients to add and adjust to recipes. The Asian ingredients I love to cook with and add to many of my recipes include sambal olek, sesame oil, fish oil and soy sauce. These flavours are undeniable.
If you prefer gluten free options, there are many new products available. For example, I use San-J Gluten Free Soy Sauce (aka Tamari Sauce) as a gluten free substitute.
Combine garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and red pepper flakes to a bowl and stir thoroughly. Set aside to let the flavours combine. Take a moment to take in the aroma from the sauce. Ahhhh.
Add the olive oil to a pan on medium heat. Add the shrimp and sear for 1 minute per side.
Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon. Place in the refrigerator to help stop the cooking process. Wipe the pan with a paper towel (Warning! Hot Pan!). Stir the sauce and add to the pan on medium heat.
Add the shrimp and green onions to the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes.
Serve hot. Drizzle the pan sauce over the shrimp. Plate, Serve, Enjoy and DANG!
