Spicin’ It Up

August 2, 2007

I ran across this recipe a week or so ago. I had a few shrimp left in the freezer that I needed to use up so I decided to give it a try tonight. It was good but REALLY spicy! I will admit I coughed and sneezed my head off trying to cook the ginger and red pepper flakes. Even my husband was coughing and he was in the other room. LOL! I made a couple alterations based on the recipe reviews and it was still very hot. So, if you like spicy, you’ll like this one. I served it over rice and with some steamed broccoli. It was an easy and fairly healthy dinner.

Honey Ginger Shrimp


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (I only use 1/2 a tsp and it was very spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1/4 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pound medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth


  1. Heat the olive oil and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger and honey; cook and stir until fragrant. Add the shrimp, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring as needed, until shrimp are pink and opaque. Deglaze the pan with chicken broth. Serve immediately.
