Spicy Shrimp Recipe
- 1 lb raw shrimp peeled and deveined, thawed
- 2 tablespoons sriracha add more if desired
- ¼ cup honey
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 ½ tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Thaw shrimp under running water if necessary.
- In a medium bowl, mix together sriracha sauce, honey, garlic, soy sauce and vinegar.
- Add shrimp and half of the marinade into a zip-lock bag or container to marinate.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. Once hot add shrimp (discard the marinade) in a single layer and add the rest of the sauce.
- Stir fry 3-4 minutes until pink and opaque (flip half way, about 2 minutes each side).
- Transfer shrimp to a serving plate.
- Thicken the sauce and remove from heat. Add the shrimp back and coat thoroughly.
- Garnish with green onion. Enjoy!
- You can replace vegetable oil with butter if you prefer buttered shrimp.
- Marinating your shrimp for 30-60 minutes is ideal, but if you are in a rush, a 10-minute marinating will be a big difference.
