Honey Lime Cajun Shrimp Stir Fry

This is a recipe I developed myself. The first stir fry that 2 out of 3 of my kids will eat! I took the basic marinade from Spicy Shrimp (Prawn) Skewers and made up my own stir fry. The vegetables are what I had on hand, so feel free to adjust the veggies to what you like to use. Time includes only 1 hour of marinading.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Place the shrimp in a sealable container and pour half the marinade over them.
  3. Refrigerate for 1 hour to overnight.
  4. Take the reserved marinade and pour into a wok, heated on high.
  5. Add vegetables to wok and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
  6. Push the vegetables to the side and add the shrimp (after draining out the marinade).
  7. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes or so.
  8. Mix the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water and add to the wok to thicken the sauce.
  9. Cook for about 1 minute.
  10. Serve over cooked brown rice. Yum!

This makes a tasty stir-fry sauce-just the right amount of heat & sweet, IMO. Subbed bean sprouts for cabbage, snow peas for sugar peas & green onions for the red onion. Colorful, crunchy, delish. It's a keeper!

This is a great and simple recipe. I ended up with lemon lime honey shrimp. I didn't realize I didn't have enough lime juice till it was too late. The flavor was great and this was so easy. I loved the cajun seasoning, nice slightly different taste.

My dh loved this simple stir-fry. I didn't have any Cajun seasoning so used Old Bay and a lot of garlic pepper! I thought the vegetables were a good combination but also thought that this is a great "clean out the veggie drawer" type of meal with or without the shrimp - maybe some leftover chicken added for a change -- open to so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing!
