Firecracker Shrimp

Firecracker Shrimp

Sweet and spicy is the name of the game! Honey sweetness is the perfect balance to a firecracker dish. Here, honey is used as a saucy glaze to impart the most robust flavor while keeping the shrimp moist and tender.

  5. Stir in reserved soy sauce mixture; cook and stir until sauce boils and thickens.
