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.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade.
Pour half of the mixture over the shrimp and coat well. Cover with a clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, steam or boil the broccoli until tender.
Heat up the vegetable oil in a pan, add the peeled and chopped green onion, ginger and garlic, and stir fry for 20-30 seconds until fragrant.
Discard of the marinade in which the shrimp has marinated, then add the shrimp to the pan and cook for 2 minutes or so on each side until their colour changes.
Toss in the cooked broccoli and the remaining marinade, and stir fry for a minute or two.
Remove from the heat and serve with the side dish of your choice.
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.
