Servings 4


  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 1 tsp fresh minced ginger
  • 5 large cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced on the bias, ¼ inch thick
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined and butterflied if desired
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cold water


  • In a In a small bowl whisk the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, red pepper and mix until combined.
  • Place the peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl or gallon sized Ziploc bag and add about 1/3 of the sauce, just so all the shrimp is coated. Toss and marinate for 15 minutes. Set aside the remaining sauce.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or wok on high heat, so it is very hot. Add the oil until shimmering, add the broccoli, carrots and salt and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring just until the green color pops, and the broccoli and carrots still have some crunch. You don’t want mushy broccoli. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Remove shrimp from the marinade. Add the oil and butter to the skillet and add shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes each side.
  • Add in the reserved sauce and bring to a simmer. Add the broccoli and carrots and coat them with the sauce.
  • Whisk the cornstarch and cold water together so there are no lumps. Add the cornstarch mixture, and cook until the sauce is thickened.
  • Serve with rice.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions
