Gochujang Honey Shrimp. A spicy honey sesame shrimp that is easy to make in under 30 minutes. A great side dish for dinner.
These shrimps are lightly coated in cornstarch and seasoning first, then pan fried in some oil and coated with a thick honey gochujang sesame soy sauce. It's so tasty and I'm surprised I don't see more gochujang shrimp recipes online!
It comes together so quickly because shrimp cooks very quickly! If you're a shrimp lover like me, then this is the perfect dish for you to try. And if you enjoy the kick from Korean Gochujang then you will really enjoy it!
My gochujang shrimp stir-fry isn't too spicy to be honest because the honey and water help to neutralize the taste of it. But there is a slight kick.
If you want to add veggies to this spicy gochujang shrimp, like red bell peppers or carrots, feel free to do so after you fry the shrimp.
