Prep: 20 min
Cook: 15 min
Total: 35 min

Makes 4 servings

  • Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce (or liquid aminos)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Rice
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice (or jasmine rice)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups raw (or frozen) broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot + 1 tablespoon water + remaining sauce


Step 1

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the sauce onto shrimp in a bowl and let it marinate at least for 20 minutes.

Step 2

In a deep nonstick skillet or pan (with a tight fitting lid), add the ingredients for the rice. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer and place the lid on. Continue cooking until all the water has been absorbed. When the rice is nearly cooked, remove the lid and place raw (or frozen) broccoli florets on top to steam, then place the lid back on to cook for the remaining time. Once finished, set aside the rice and broccoli and place the skillet back on the heat.

Step 3

Set the heat to high and once hot, toss in the onion and bell pepper slices. Cook the veggies until the outside of them are seared, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

Step 4

Place the skillet back on the heat and reduce the heat to medium-high. Add olive oil and the marinated shrimp. Sear and cook the shrimp in the skillet. When it is nearly cooked (plump and pink), about 3 minutes, then mix the remaining sauce with the arrowroot and water and add it to the skillet.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to low-medium and once the sauce begins to bubble, IMMEDIATELY stir and fold the shrimp in the sauce. Remove the skillet from the heat once the sauce is thick and continue stirring and folding.

Step 6

Build the meals by evenly dividing the ingredients by 4, or your number of servings.
