  • 1 1/4 lbs large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil divided use
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch

  • Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
  • Add the broccoli and cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove the broccoli from the pan; place it on a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high.

  • Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the broccoli back into the pan.
  • In a bowl whisk together the water, honey and soy sauce. 
  • In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  • Pour the soy sauce mixture over the shrimp and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds. 
  • Add the cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
  • Serve immediately, with rice if desired.


  1. You can leave the shrimp tails on or off, your choice!
  2. Cut the broccoli florets into approximately 1 inch pieces so that they'll cook quickly.
  3. I mince the garlic as fine as possible using either a knife or a garlic press.
