  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • Sprinkle of chili flakes
  • 2 Tbsp of potato or corn starch
  • 1 lb of cooked shrimp


Mix the honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Allow for the shrimp to marinate for about 30 min in half of the marinate.

Add the corn starch into the other half of the marinate.

Place the shrimp on a skillet and pour in the marinate with the corn starch. Add the chili flakes.

Cook until the marinate simmers.

Serve with rice and vegetables of your choice.


I was out of dinner ideas and the one thing I had in my freezer was a bag of shrimp, so I searched for easy shrimp recipes and found honey shrimp. It was quick and easy to make. It was a nice combination of sweet and savory. My entire family enjoyed it and even wanted seconds.

This is a recipe I will definitely be making again and I hope you will give it a try as well.

  1. Tasty way to make use of what you have on hand, and a good way to meet the challenge of a (nearly) empty pantry! As your earlier Sweet and Sour Pork recipe shows, candied and savory preparations are especially apt for warm weather.

    For the Honey Shrimp, the way to do it is to take some rice and dip it in the sauce, right? Mmmm! Somehow, you found a way of making shrimp even better!

    1. I poured the sauce over the rice on my plate, but that is up to you. Thank you for the great compliments as always! I absolutely love shrimp and this recipe has become one of my favorites 🙂
