This is one of the many recipes that Aaron and I want to share with you.

What You’ll Need

1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (prepare yourself!)

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced

4 Tablespoons honey

2 Tablespoons soy sauce (modification for gluten free: we used Tamari soy sauce)


Coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil

Cast iron skillet

Brown rice

A rice cooker you never thought you needed

How We Did It

  1. Peel and devein shrimp.
  2. Combine garlic, ginger, honey, and soy sauce. Divide in half.
  3. Marinate shrimp for 30 minutes while you teach your husband to use the nifty rice cooker you thought you never needed. Discard marinade.
  4. Over medium heat, seer shrimp in oil (dealers choice). The shrimp should cook on both sides for approximately 1 minute, or until browned.
  5. Remove shrimp from heat and add to brown rice.
  6. Drizzle remaining marinade over the shrimp and brown rice.
  7. Enjoy!

A Final Note

Aaron and I had so much fun cooking this together. We loved putting our own spin on it but we do need to give credit where it is due. Find the original recipe here:
