Honey Glazed Shrimps

My dad’s spice tolerance is low and the usual non-vegetarian food we make at home is too spicy for him, so I looked up dishes that he could enjoy. I came across Honey Glazed Chicken but because I had shrimps at home, I made this dish with some variations especially for my father.


  • 1 Cup Shrimps
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 6-7 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Chilli Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tsp Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp Pepper
  • Salt to Taste


Prep: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

  1. Clean the prawns, remove the thread but you can keep the tail intact if you want. Wash well and keep aside.
  2. For the sauce, mix honey, soy sauce, ketchup, chilli powder and salt. 
  3. Chop onion and garlic finely.
  4. Toss the shrimps in butter in a pan till they’re cooked. Keep aside.
  5. In the same pan, fry onions and garlic. Once they’re brown, add the sauce mixture and a little water. Stir. If the water is too much, add cornflour slurry (cornflour and 2 tablespoon water) and stir continuously to avoid lumps.
  6. Once the sauce thickens, add the shrimps and mix well.
  7. Adjust salt and serve hot.
