Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (gluten-free, if needed. Coco aminosĀ for paleo)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, very finely minced
  • A pinch of chili flakes
  • 1 lb. tail on shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced ginger (or ginger paste)
  • 1 1/2 lb broccoli, cut into bite-sizedĀ pieces

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. When it turns golden brown (after about 4-5 minutes) add the honey, soy sauce or coco aminos, lime juice, sesame oil, garlic, and chili flakes to the pan and boil for 2 minutes. Pour the sauce into a heat-proof dish.
  2. Add the ginger and broccoli to the pan and let the broccoli cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften and brown spots appear, about 5-6 minutes. Remove the broccoli from the pan.
  3. Ad the shrimp to the pan and let them cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or just until they turn pink.
  4. Push the shrimp to the side and add the broccoli back to the pan and pour the sesame honey sauce over top. Mix together then serve right away.

Notes

For a less sweet dish, serve the broccoli on the side rather than mixing it into the sauce.
