In My Kitchen // Tasty Orange Shrimp

Back in the kitchen yet again! Let’s face it, I enjoy cooking, but detest washing the dishes after. I love finding new things to experiment with and I got to thank PINTERST for that. As a quick meal for after work or school I decided on shrimp for the meat; with a simple search and there were so many options. HONEY ORANGE FIRECRACKER SHRIMP spiked my interest and taste buds.

Copy of In my kitchen


1 1/2 Pounds Shrimp
Seasonings (Black pepper, salt, garlic and onion powder)
1 Cup Cornstarch
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil

Sauce –
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
3 Tbsps Soy Sauce
1/2 Cup Honey
1 Tsp Orange Marmalade
2 Tbsps Orange Juice
1 Tsp Sriracha Sauce



  • Peel and devein shrimp; season with salt, black pepper, garlic and onion powder
  • Coat shrimp in cornstarch and set aside
  • In a small bowl whisk together ingredients for the sauce until combined
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan and cook shrimp 2-3 on each side or until crisp
  • Drain on a plate (no paper towels)
  • Drain the oil and add the sauce to the pan, place shrimp in sauce and toss to combine
  • This shouldn’t take long to thicken so keep an eye on it (10 – 15 secs)
  • Add green onions/sesame seeds for garnish and serve


I decided to pair mine with some spaghetti and stir-fried vegetables. You can swap the shrimp for any meat of your choice and I also believe this would go very well with white rice.

Tell me what you think!!
