For the Shrimp:

  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled + deveined
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ cup canned coconut milk, you will use the rest for the rice
  • 2 tbsp fresh orange or lime juice

For the Coconut Rice:

  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk + ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Add the olive oil, honey, soy sauce, coconut milk, orange juice, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper and cumin to a large bowl. Whisk to combine and then toss with shrimp to coat. Set aside
  • Add all the ingredients for the rice, to a rice cooker or small pot. Turn rice cooker on, or bring pot up to a boil, then lower to a low flame, cover and cook for 20 minutes until done.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, use a slotted spoon to remove the shrimp from the marinade, reserving the marinade for later.
  • Cook the shrimp until pink, about 1-2 minutes per side, and season with ½ tsp salt. Remove the shrimp (so it doesn't overcook), add the remaining marinade and reduce the sauce for 2 more minutes until it thickens.
  • Add the shrimp back in just to toss in the sauce.
