Ingredients and Substitutes


Shrimp (1lb) – You can use either fresh or frozen shrimp.

Salt and black pepper

Olive oil (1 tbsp)

Garlic (1 clove) – I prefer fresh garlic.


Garlic (4 cloves)  – fresh or powdered.

Red chili flakes (1/2 tbsp) – A little kick of chili is the perfect thing to add some spice to the dish.

Honey (2 tbsp) – or you could also use sugar.

Soy sauce (2 tbsp) – Low-sodium soy sauce is ideal for this dish.

How to Make Honey Garlic Shrimp Meal Prep

Step 1. Cook rice according to the instructions on the package.

Step 2. Mix together all of the garlic honey sauce ingredients.

Step 3. Get your frying pan on medium-high heat, then add a tablespoon of olive oil to let it heat up. Drop in a single clove of minced garlic

Step 4. Then, add the shrimp, salt and black pepper. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until the garlic goes golden brown, but the shrimp stays tender even once cooked. Take it out of the pan.

Step 5. Lower the heat and add carrots to the pan. Saute for a couple of minutes. Add more olive oil if you need it.

Add in your broccoli, saute for a couple of minutes, and add the corn kernels and snow peas. Add salt and black pepper. Pour the sauce over those delicious vegetables to coat them.

Mix it all together to coat the vegetables and make sure they’re all thoroughly cooked. Sauteeing for about five more minutes should do the trick.

Step 6. Divide all of the ingredients into 4 food containers

What to Pair with Shrimp?

Shrimp is a delicious summer dish, so it’s perfect with a side of crisp vegetables. Fresh vegetables like green beans, snow peas, carrots, corn, and broccoli are ideal for shrimp.
