Welcome to Fast2eat! If you’re looking for easy-to-prepare, nutritious, delicious, and Fast-2-eat recipes, then you’re in the right place.

This Shrimp and Brussels Sprout is a quick and easy dinner. Honey, garlic, and sesame oil make this a flavourful dinner you can make in about 20 minutes!

This is one of my favourite weeknight dinners because it is so fast, healthy, and delicious.

It is a great meal that you make in a snap but savours slowly.

I love Asian-inspired dishes like this – sesame oil, honey, soy, rice vinegar are usual suspects in my stir-fries.

Even if you are on the fence about Brussels sprouts, you should totally give it a try! The flavours are fresh, sweet, and wonderfully savoury.

Serve over a bed of quinoa or rice as a side.

Marinated Shrimp

  • Wash, peel and devein the shrimp.
  • Whisk together honey, rice vinegar, soy sauce and ginger in a bowl.
  • Add shrimp and toss to combine. Cover and let the shrimp marinate while you start cutting and cooking the brussels sprouts.

Sautée Brussels Sprout

  • Wash brussels sprouts and, with a sharp knife, trim stems and shred them.
  • In a wok or large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high. Sautée brussels sprouts, occasionally stirring until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Drizzle with honey, season with salt and pepper, and toss for about 1-2 minutes to combine until the edges begin to be slightly brown.
  • Transfer to a separate platter.

Stir-fry Shrimp

  • Add vegetable oil to the wok or large skillet and return to heat.
  • Add garlic, Ladyfinger or chilli pepper, and scallion whites and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  • Drain the shrimp, then add to the pan.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and sauté until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes.

Garnish to serve

  • Add to the platter, drizzle with sesame oil, top with green onions (green part), and toss.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fried garlic and lime wedges if desired.

Reduce the marinated (optional)

  • Bring marinated leftover to the pan and reduce a bit for a delicious glaze.
  • Cover with the remaining marinade/glaze mixture.
  • Serve hot.



Food processor
If you are in a rush, a food processor makes fast work of shredding sprouts.
Frozen shrimp
I used raw shrimp that was frozen but then thawed. I thaw them by running water over them through a strainer for a few minutes.
Frozen shrimp is my go-to protein for fast dinners because:
  • They thaw out quickly – no need to remember to pull them out of the freezer well in advance.
  • They cook quickly - They usually take about 5 minutes to cook but cooking time will vary depending on the size you use, so keep a close eye on them.
Shrimp cook very quickly, and overcooking them will make them rubbery and just generally not appetizing. But the nice thing about them is you can tell they are done when they turn from grey to pink.
Shrimp tails
It is up to you whether or not the tails are removed. I like to remove the shrimp's tails before cooking, but the tails can be left on the shrimp for a nicer presentation and removed before eating.
