I’m excited to share an easy 20 minute honey garlic shrimp and broccoli recipe with you today.
Along with our gluten free fish sticks, this is a big hit among our toddlers!

Busy times equate to the need for quick, easy meals for me. And let me tell ya – sheet pan meals do the trick, especially a 20 minute honey garlic shrimp recipe.
One of my favorite Thursday night dinner ideas.
After tweaking this honey garlic shrimp and broccoli recipe a few times and determining it’s the best shrimp marinade ever, we were set with meals for a few nights.
It’s my favorite method of easy cheap meal prep!
Ingredients for Honey Ginger Shrimp
- thawed, deveigned shrimp
- broccoli or any combination of frozen vegetables (I used a stir fry blend)
- sesame seeds
- fresh basil or cilantro (optional)
The sheet pan shrimp and veggies part is super easy. And making the honey ginger shrimp is equally easy.
Then you put the two together to make the easiest, 20 minute garlic shrimp and vegetables.
And let’s talk about frozen veggies – they are life savers. I used a bag of frozen veggies (defrosted) for this recipe, but you could totally use fresh. And mix up the veggies to what you like!
I used a bag of the broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mix, as well as the stir fry blend.
20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp Marinade
To make the ginger garlic and lemon marinade, you’ll mix
Ginger and garlic together is a dream flavor to me. I also really happen to love soy sauce and the flavor it imparts on mixed dishes.
It’s one of those sauces we always have on hand, where a little goes a long way for this ginger and garlic shrimp and broccoli dish.
It’s almost like a honey shrimp stir fry, except we’re cooking it on a sheet pan to make things easier.
How to Make This 20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees.
To make the honey garlic shrimp sauce, whisk honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and lemon juice. Then, add the shrimp to the bowl and let marinate.
Spread the veggies in a single layer on one end of a baking sheet, seasoning with salt and pepper. Bake for 12 minutes.
Then, we’ll add these cooked veggies to the honey garlic glaze bowl with shrimp and arrange everything back on the baking sheet.
Finally, bake for 8-10 minutes, or until shrimp are firm and cooked through.
Is Shrimp Healthy for Pregnancy?
Because we’re going to have a newborn soon, we’re practicing with quick, easy and minimal meals and this is among my favorite easy freezer meal for new moms.
I feel like shrimp is one of those underrated foods. It’s so good and SO EASY to cook with, but people rarely buy it. I wonder why that is?
- Shrimp is actually a great, nutrient-dense seafood option. Shrimp is high in selenium, which is a natural antioxidant in the body.
- Just four ounces of shrimp provides about 325 -375 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids, including about 50% EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 50% DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
- These nutrients are great for pregnancy because they contribute to the baby’s brain health (more about pregnancy nutrition here).
Unlike most shrimp on the market, Pier 33’s Wild Argentine Shrimp is cold water shrimp.
What sets these apart is that they taste like (and have a similar texture to) lobster! You get the delicate, fancy tastes and feels for a fraction of the price.
Plus, shrimp cook very quickly so are a perfect weeknight meal option. I highly suggest pairing the shrimp and veggies with a grain of some sort.
Mainly because grains can be bland on their own (why we dress up this lemon herb cheesy quinoa), but when you cover them with a flavor combination like this, your taste buds come alive.
