Seafood is one of our favorite proteins to cook, not only for its great taste but also because it is super quick to prepare. This Orange Garlic Shrimp recipe is extremely versatile, easy to follow and packed with flavor. It’s a delicious, nutritious meal that everyone in the family can agree on.
This Orange Garlic Shrimp is the perfect recipe to introduce seafood into your meal planning rotation, and has been a hit in my house since I first made it a few weeks ago. The citrus from the orange juice pairs well with the hint of sweetness from the honey and makes this dish so fresh and bright. And, it is extremely easy to make, even for the beginner cook.
We love shrimp, but if you prefer, you can easily change out the protein in this recipe—it is equally delicious with chicken or beef. If you are a vegetarian, extra firm tofu is a wonderful replacement.
And for the veggies, feel free to use any of your favorites! I tend to choose fresh vegetables that are in season—some of my favorites for this dish are broccoli, carrots and peppers—but you can substitute frozen veggies in a pinch.
For the orange juice, I choose Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice. Florida’s Natural comes from pure Florida oranges. There are no artificial flavors or ingredients, and Florida’s Natural only uses oranges hand-picked from their grower-owned orange groves in Florida. Plus, Florida’s Natural orange juice is full of vitamins and minerals like potassium and vitamin C.
If you like Asian-inspired recipes, you are going to love this Orange Garlic Shrimp recipe. It has quickly become a regular dinner in our house.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1/2 cup Florida’s Natural® Orange Juice
- 1/3 cup vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch
- 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 red and 1 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 8 oz fresh broccoli
- 4 cloves garlic, minced (1 1/2 Tbsp)
- 3 oz sliced green onions
- 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
To make the orange sauce, whisk together sauce ingredients in a medium size bowl and set aside.
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible.
Heat a wok or 12-inch skillet over high heat. Add the oil and heat just until it's beginning to smoke, then add the peppers and broccoli. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.
Then, add the orange sauce to the pan. Stir it slowly into the shrimp and vegetables until the sauce boils and thickens, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
Serve with a side of rice and garnish with green onions, sesame seeds and cilantro.
