I have used medium sized fresh shrimp in this recipe.
The sauce along with Shrimp,Broccoli and Scallions make an amazing dish to go with rice.

Tips to make Honey Garlic Shrimp Stir Fry:

  • Preferably use fresh shrimp for best taste results. But if you are not able to find the right shrimp for this recipe then use pre-cleaned frozen shrimp.

  • To thaw the frozen shrimp,keep them in the refrigerator section for few hours prior to cooking.This way the shrimp  will thaw well.

  • If you love spicy food then go ahead and add some paprika or chili flakes in the recipe.

  • Keep the tail on or off the shrimp as per personal choice.

  • Use fresh ingredients like garlic,ginger and not from store bought packs/jars. Fresh ingredients always get the best in any recipe.

  • Do not overcook the shrimp as it turns rubbery if cooked for a long time and looses its taste.

  • Sauce is very good in this recipe,do not toss it away.Its so good when mixed with rice or eaten with bread too.

  • Keep everything ready before you start. This makes the cooking time very less.
