Honey Garlic Sriracha Shrimp

Sharing is caring!

Honey Garlic Sriracha Shrimp is a sweet and spicy shrimp dish that comes together in under 20 minutes in a skillet. You can use this shrimp as an appetizer, over rice or paired with vegetables. If you like spicy food you will love this seafood dish!

HONEY GARLIC SRIRACHA SHRIMP

When it comes to seafood my kids will eat certain recipes I make. I love that I can get them to eat seafood because I refused to eat it as a child.

A few of their favorites are this Baked Cod with Lemon, Black Sea Bass or this Mediterranean Salmon.

Mike and I enjoy it too and it is nice to have a seafood option that the whole family will eat. 

I often will make this Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta, Shrimp Scampi with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and this One Pot Mediterranean Shrimp Pasta.

It is nice to have options to rotate through.

Today’s Honey Garlic Sriracha Shrimp is spicy so if your kids don’t like that you can make half without the sriracha.

When you leave out the sriracha you end up with a sweeter Honey Garlic Shrimp dish which is delicious too!

This shrimp works great as an appetizer, served over rice or pasta or alongside vegetables.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS HONEY GARLIC SHRIMP?

SHRIMP: You can use whatever shrimp you like but I like to buy fresh, deveined shrimp to save time. I also really like the bigger shrimp but any size will work just fine. 

HONEY: Honey adds a nice sweetness to this dish and balances out the spicy sriracha sauce. 

SOY SAUCE: When I use soy sauce I try to go for a low-sodium option.

You can also sub in coconut aminos for a gluten-free option in place of the soy sauce. 

SRIRACHA: I love sriracha sauce. I often will add a drizzle to this Asian Chicken Noodle Soup or this Spicy Asian Chicken Zoodle Soup.

The sriracha works really well with shrimp giving it a nice kick!

GINGER: Ginger is added to the sauce in this spicy shrimp dish.

If you don’t have ginger on hand you can skip it or sub dried ginger for fresh ginger.

WHAT TO PAIR WITH THIS GARLIC SHRIMP RECIPE?

I like serving potatoes with our meals throughout the week. Some of my favorites are these Gouda Smashed Potatoes, Spicy Lebanese Potatoes or these Lemon Cilantro Potatoes. 

Adding a salad to your meals is a nice way to get those vegetables and greens in. A few of the ones I serve on repeat are this Lemon Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts, Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing or this Mediterranean Bean Salad.

Simple side dishes work nicely with this spicy shrimp dish. A few I make are this Simple Roasted Broccoli, Za’atar Roasted Cauliflower with Yogurt Tahini Sauce or these Za’atar Roasted Carrots.
