To create this incredible Honey Soy Glazed Shrimp, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 pound of fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 1/4 cup water

  • Cooked rice for serving

Honey Soy Glazed Shrimp Instructions:

Prepare the Shrimp: In a large skillet, heat the cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add the fresh shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the shrimp turn pink and start to curl. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside.

Create the Glaze: In the same skillet, add minced garlic and grated ginger. Sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Then, pour in the honey, soy sauce, and water. Stir well to combine the ingredients. Allow the mixture to simmer for 3-4 minutes until it thickens and becomes a glaze.

Glaze the Shrimp: Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet, coating them thoroughly in the honey-soy glaze. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring gently, until the shrimp are fully glazed and heated through.

Serve and Enjoy: Spoon the Honey Soy Glazed Shrimp over a bed of cooked rice, allowing the glaze to soak into the rice for an extra burst of flavor.

The Harmony of Flavors: The magic of Honey Soy Glazed Shrimp lies in the harmonious blend of ingredients. Fresh shrimp are lightly coated with oil and seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper, enhancing their natural flavors. The real star of the show, however, is the irresistible honey-soy glaze. The sweetness of honey pairs perfectly with the savory depth of soy sauce, while garlic and ginger provide a delightful kick of aroma and taste.
