  • ¼ cup soy sauce we usually use reduced sodium
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (or 1 Tablespoon jarred minced garlic)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger minced fresh , optional
  • 1 lb shrimp medium uncooked peeled & deveined
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • green onion chopped, optional for garnish
  • 1 cup rice We use the Uncle Ben's 90 sec jasmine rice


  • Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger (if using) together in a medium bowl. You will use half for the marinade in step 2 and half for cooking the shrimp in step 3.
  • Place shrimp in a large seal-able container or zipped-top bag. Pour 1/2 of the marinade/sauce mixture on top, give it all a shake or stir, then allow shrimp to marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or for up to 8-12 hours. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for step 3.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in the skillet. (Discard used marinade.) Cook shrimp on one side until pink, about 45 seconds, then flip shrimp over. Pour in remaining marinade/sauce and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1-2 more minutes.
  • Serve shrimp with cooked marinade sauce and a garnish of green onion. The sauce is excellent on rice and steamed vegetables on the side. We normally use the 90 second packets of Uncle Bens white rice, for convenience but rice prepared how ever you prefer works fine.


  • Thicken the sauce? Some add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to the second half of the sauce that will be used for cooking in step 3. This thickens the sauce so it isn’t as watery. To do this, use a fork to mix 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 1 teaspoon warm water. Once cornstarch has dissolved, stir this into the sauce before using it in step 3.
