TAMPA, Fla. – Fresh From Florida, offers agriculture news, farming tips, and recipes that most Floridians don’t know about. We wanted to share this amazingly delicious Shrimp Stir-Fry recipe with you.
1 pound Florida shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 Florida bell peppers, assorted colors, sliced
1 tablespoon Florida honey
1 cup Florida orange juice
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
Olive oil for cooking
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Lightly coat the shrimp with the cornstarch. Preheat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the preheated sauté pan. Carefully add the coated shrimp to the sauté pan and cook until almost done, about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan and add the peppers and onions. Cook the peppers for 4 minutes. Add the honey, orange juice, and soy sauce to the pan. Turn the heat up slightly. Bring the liquid ingredients up to a boil. Turn the heat back down to medium-high and add the shrimp back to the sauté pan. The sauce should thicken and the shrimp will be cooked after 3 minutes. Serve over brown rice. Garnish with sesame seeds.
