How I Came Up With This Recipe

Recently I was trying to figure out what to make my husband and I for dinner. I had some frozen large shrimp, some fresh veggies, and a good idea for turning it into a stir fry meal. Small amounts of meat, and LOTS of veggies make for a pretty tasty dinner.

I remembered a sauce I used last year for some Asian Lemon Chicken Strips, and decided to make a shrimp stir fry using the same sauce. Boy, was it good! I will post the recipe as I made it , but remember, with a stir fry, you can add any kind of veggies that you like or have available.

This stir fry is so easy. The sauce takes about 15 minutes to cook. While it is cooking, you can stir fry the veggies and shrimp. Combine it all, heat through, and serve. It’s THAT easy, and it only takes about 30 minutes, from start to finish. And it’s really delicious, too! Sure hope you’ll give this one a try! Here’s how to make Asian Glazed Shrimp and Veggies:

Make The Asian-Inspired Sauce

Here’s what I did:  First I made the sauce. Easy. Combine all ingredients in saucepan and cook for about 15 minutes.

Steam the veggies for about 5 minutes. Usually I just stir fry them in a bit of olive oil (5-6 minutes) in a skillet. This time I steamed them a bit just to get them softened up a bit, then stir fried them. Don’t know what came over me.

If you stir fry the veggies, take them out of skillet when done. Add a bit more olive oil and you can stir fry the shrimp in same skillet.

Broccoli, orange and red bell peppers, and red onions are cooked for this dish.
Cook The Shrimp

Stir fry the shrimp in a small amount of olive oil, turning them over to cook both sides. This only takes a 3-4 minutes. The shrimp are done once they turn “pinkish” on all sides.

Transfer the cooked veggies back into the skillet to hang out with the shrimp. Now it’s starting to look good!

Pour enough of the sauce into the skillet to coat everything (you may have a bit of the sauce left over). No worries… the sauce freezes well!

For The Stir Fry:
  • 1/2 pound medium or large shrimp , peeled, deveined (Approx. 6-7 shrimp per serving)
  • 2 cups Broccoli florets (approx. 2 cups of florets)
  • 2 slices Red onion (as much as you like. I used about 2 round slices, cut in half)
  • 1 cup Red, orange, or yellow bell pepper slices (any combo works- 1 cup slices total)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil (divided)
For the Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar , packed
  • Juice & zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Prepare sauce: Place all sauce ingredients into a medium sized saucepan. Stir well, to combine. Bring mixture to a rolling boil over medium heat; once at a rolling boil, reduce heat, and simmer for approx. 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cooks.

  2. While sauce is cooking, heat 1 ½ Tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet. When oil is hot, add broccoli florets, sliced red onion, and sliced red, yellow and orange bell peppers. Stir fry veggies, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Remove veggies from pan to a plate. Set aside.

  3. Add remaining 1 ½ Tablespoons olive oil back into the skillet. Heat oil again. When it is good and hot, add shrimp. Cook shrimp on both sides for 3-4 minutes or until shrimp has turned pink on all sides. When done, add veggies back into the skillet.

  4. Add enough sauce to completely coat shrimp and veggies. Stir to combine well. Heat shrimp, veggies and sauce until fully heated through (only takes a minute or two).

  5. Serve, with a side of rice, or on top of a bed of rice. Drizzle extra sauce from the skillet over the shrimp. (You can freeze any leftover sauce; cover it tightly. It freezes well.) Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

This recipe was created for two people, but is ridiculously easy to double, triple, etc. You will have some sauce leftover, as you won't need it all, when cooking for two servings. The calorie count includes all of the sauce ingredients.
