Easy Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Recipe

It has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe… shame on me, for keeping all the yumminess to myself. πŸ™‚ Truth is, I’ve been winging it, dinner, life, motherhood, everything!! Which is a testament to me needing some organization in my life at the moment. And meal planning action in the kitchen. Last week I made a sweet and spicy shrimp dinner worth sharing…

Because my love for rice is undeniable, this is the side that accompanied the shrimp. If you need basic instructions on how to make white rice, leave me a comment. πŸ˜‰ I will walk you through it.

Now, on to the shrimp, you will need one pound of shrimp, brown sugar, honey, Siracha, broccoli (frozen is fine) and red pepper flakes. First cook the shrimp, at about five minutes in, you can add the frozen broccoli and red pepper flakes and cover.

For the sauce, mix the brown sugar, siracha and honey to taste. I also added about 1/4 cups of flour to thicken the sauce a bit – this is optional. Add the sauce to shrimp, mixing well and cook for about five additional minutes. Serve warm over the rice.

  1. This sounds like a great meal. I love easy and this one sounds easy and delicious. I like sweet and sour, I have issues with spicy but I bet my boys would really enjoy it for something different.
