Crispy Honey Sriracha Shrimp

Valentina

Crispy shrimp get caramelized in a quick sweet and spicy glaze with a touch of aromatic basil. It's a delicious and quick recipe that can be enjoyed on its own or served alongside cauliflower rice, papaya salad, or Cashew Celery Salad. If you like a lot of heat, add in as much of the hot sauce as you can enjoyably handle.

Shopping List
    Shrimp
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, shelled and de-veined (tail-on or tail-off)
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil Sauce
  • 1 cup fresh basil, leaves intact (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha or preferred hot sauce (add more for extra spicy)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 lime, juiced (optional, for serving)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Dry the shrimp completely and toss with the starch until evenly coated.
  2. Step 2: Add the 2 tablespoons of cooking oil to a wide frying pan over medium-high heat. Only once the oil is sizzling hot, add the shrimp in a single layer. If all the shrimp do not fit in the pan, then cook them in 2 batches (add extra oil to the pan as needed). Cook the shrimp for 2 minutes on one side. Flip and cook another 1 minute. Set a timer to avoid overcooking. Set aside on a paper-towel lined plate when done.
  3. Step 3: Mix together the sriracha and honey. Heat the frying pan to medium-high heat. Add the 1 teaspoon of cooking oil and the garlic. Cook for 15 seconds, then add the honey mixture, basil, and shrimp. Toss to coat everything in the sauce, just until the basil begins to wilt. Remove from the heat.
  4. Serve: This is best enjoyed fresh with a squeeze of optional lime juice on top.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: For this recipe, I used Yacon Syrup as a low-carb liquid sweetener. You could use other low-carb honey substitutes, tasting and adjusting the seasonings as needed. If you don't have any honey substitutes, you could dissolve 1 tablespoon of granulated sweetener (1:1 sugar substitute) in 1 tablespoon of coconut aminos and use it as your honey substitute in this recipe.
