You know I love shrimp recipes, from Roasted Shrimp and Asparagus to Garlic Shrimp, I can’t help myself.  I love this recipe because the sauce is a little sweet and spicy, and the recipe is so fast!  Whisk together a sauce, pour half of it on the shrimp to give it a quick marinade – 15 minutes will do.  Then saute some broccoli, then the shrimp, then they all go back in the pan together with the reserved sauce.  Serve over rice – or cauliflower rice for fewer carbs.

Garnish with a few sesame seeds if you want – they are really just for looks, so don’t worry if you don’t have them on hand.  And dinner is served!

This Honey Sesame Shrimp and Broccoli is a quick and easy dinner.  Shrimp and broccoli are quickly sautéed in a sweet and savory sauce that everyone will love! This is great served over rice or noodles, or you can use cauliflower rice or zoodles for a lower carb dinner.

Ingredients 

For The Stir Fry:

  • 1 pound shrimp I like 21-25 count size
  • 1 pound broccoli cut into small florets
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Honey Sesame sauce see below
  • sesame seeds for garnish optional

For The Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce reduced sodium
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or to desired spiciness
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions 

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT the cornstarch.  Pour half of the sauce over the shrimp, reserve the other half of the sauce.  Marinade the shrimp for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Add the cornstarch to the reserved sauce, whisk to combine.  Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the oil.  When hot, add the broccoli and stir fry until crisp-tender and bright green, about 5 minutes.  Remove broccoli from pan.
  • In the same pan, add the marinaded shrimp.  Sear on one side until starting to turn pink, -2 minutes, flip and repeat on other side.  Remove from pan as soon as shrimp are pink and cooked through.
  • Wipe out pan.  Return the broccoli to the pan.  Pour the reserved sauce over the broccoli and toss to fully coat the broccoli in the sauce.  Return the shrimp back to the pan.  Toss to coat everything in the sauce, continue to cook for about a minute, or until sauce has thickened and everything is heated through.  Remove from heat.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.

Notes

We don't put the cornstach in the marinade because it will make the shrimp very soft.  The cornstarch added to the reserved sauce will help it thicken.

  1. Would this be okay without the chili sauce and a bit less ginger? I can’t eat anything spicy, and my husband only likes mild spice. My husband and I are starting a healthy eating, low carb life style and this looks delicious!

  2. 5 stars
    I am so making this on February 1st! I am nutso about shrimp. And I really need to try cauliflower rice.

  3. Oh no I fell off the healthy eating train before I even got off. But still looking for healthy dinners. This looks so delish 🙂 and perfect for one of these hot summer nights
