I created this recipe for those who have a sweet tooth but also enjoy a bit of spice in their life! Substitute chicken for shrimp if desired.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke. Stir in garlic, onion, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Quickly cook until the onion softens and just begins to brown. Stir in bell pepper, zucchini, and mushrooms; continue cooking until the zucchini softens, about 4 minutes.
  2. Stir cornstarch into honey until smooth, then add to vegetables, and simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, and cook until they turn pink, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

My husband and I really liked this. My grown son didn't care for the heavy honey flavor. We used just under a teaspoon of the crushed red pepper, and it was still very spicy - my husband would like it better with even less. I used 2 zucchini like someone else said in their review and more ginger but other than that I did everything else according to the recipe. We served with whole wheat pasta. We'll make this again with some slight modification.

This was very good! My husband loved it. I used two zucchini and only 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes. I liked that it was a pretty quick and easy meal! i will definitely make this again.
