I’ve recently realized how important it is to have some easy meals that consist of things I keep on hand. When life hands me a crazy situation, I still like to have a meal on the table for my family, even if it’s just Mike and I. There is comfort and stability in a home cooked meal, and it grounds us.

These shrimp bowl are so many things.

  • Balanced – protein, veggies, and carbs for a well rounded meal.
  • Tasty – a great spicy (but not too spicy) meal, with lots of texture and flavors.
  • Simple – with a little bit of advance prep, this meal can be on your table fast.

Ingredients needed for Honey Sriracha Shrimp Bowls:

I keep most of these items either stocked in my pantry or freezer. The only fresh ingredient is the veggies, but you could also use frozen in a pinch.

  • Shrimp – You’ll need two pounds of shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed.
  • Honey – This sweetener balances out the spicy sriracha sauce.
  • Sriracha – Spicy on its own, but with the honey, it makes a great marinade.
  • Vinegar – Just a couple of splashes of rice wine vinegar.
  • Seasoning – I used a pinch of salt and pepper, but you could try other seasonings as well.
  • Veggies – I love roasted broccoli with these bowls, but feel free to use anything you have on hand.
  • Rice – We are pretty wild about white rice, so that’s what I keep stocked in my pantry.

How to make Honey Sriracha Shrimp Bowls:

  1. Prep shrimp. Peel, devein, and remove the tails from the shrimp. You can also buy the shrimp prepped, if desired.
  2. Make marinade. Combine the honey, sriracha sauce, rice wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix well, and pour over shrimp, reserving about 1/4 cup. Let this sit for about 30 minutes.
  3. Cook shrimp. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little oil, and then some of the shrimp. Don’t crowd the pan. The shrimp should cook in just a few minutes. Be careful to avoid over-cooking. When it turns pink, it’s done. Cooking the shrimp may take several batches, depending on the size of your skillet.
  4. Cook veggies and rice. Meanwhile, roast veggies of your choice with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook rice according to package directions.
  5. Serve. Serve the shrimp over veggies and rice, and add a bit of the reserved marinade, if desired.

Pro-Tip: Eat leftover shrimp (if there are any leftovers) cold! So good. 😀
