Healthy Honey Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Honey Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli over a bed of rice, a super healthy stir fry that is packed with fantastic flavours. Quick and easy to make, and perfect for a midweek dinner for two, my shrimp stir fry is the best homemade Chinese-style dish you can get. Marinating the shrimp/prawns beforehand enhances the flavours, so not to skip this step. Otherwise, you can get the it ready real quickly in the skillet or even oven.

Notes

Do not cook the shrimp for too long, more than 5 minutes and it becomes rubbery and quite hard to bite, so keep an eye on it, once it turns pink, don't leave it to cook for longer than 1-2 minutes maximum.
