  • 1 Stove Top


  • 1 pound Florida shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 3 Florida bell peppers assorted colors, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Florida honey
  • 1 cup Florida orange juice
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • Olive Oil for cooking
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


  • Lightly coat the shrimp with the cornstarch. Preheat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the preheated sauté pan. Carefully add the coated shrimp to the sauté pan and cook until almost done, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove the shrimp from the pan and add the peppers and onions. Cook the peppers for 4 minutes. Add the honey, orange juice, and soy sauce to the pan. Turn the heat up slightly. Bring the liquid ingredients up to a boil.
  • Turn the heat back down to medium-high and add the shrimp back to the sauté pan. The sauce should thicken and the shrimp will be cooked after 3 minutes. Serve over brown rice. Garnish with sesame seeds.
