Ingredients

  • 475 g raw shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 60 g soy sauce
  • 30 g honey
  • 30 g orange juice
  • 30 g Dijon mustard
  • 12 g garlic, minced
  • 2 drops liquid stevia
  • 1 scallion, chopped, for garnish
  • Nonstick spray
  • Prep Time 5 minutes + 20 minute marinade
  • Cooking Time 5 minutes
  • Difficulty Easy

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the shrimp until well combined. Add shrimp, toss, and let the mixture marinate for 20–30 minutes.

  2. When you’re ready to cook the shrimp, heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat and spray it with nonstick spray. Drain the shrimp and reserve the sauce.

  3. Add the shrimp to the pan in a single layer (you’ll likely need to cook it in two batches) and cook until the shrimp is pink and curled. Depending on the size of your shrimp and how many you have in the pan, this could take about 3–5 minutes total. Place the cooked shrimp in a clean bowl and set aside.

  4. Pour the leftover sauce into the hot pan and let it bubble until it darkens slightly and thickens, or until it coats the back of a wooden spoon, about 60–90 seconds. Pour the sauce back over the cooked shrimp, garnish with green onions, and serve.


Not sure if your shrimp is fully cooked? When they curl tight enough to resemble a lower case “a,” they’re all done!
