Spicy Gochujang Honey Shrimp

  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 10, 3 ounce servings 1x
  • Diet: Diabetic


Units Scale
  • 2 lbs 21/25 shrimp
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Gochujang
  • 2 teaspoons chili flakes (for added heat, but optional if you don’t want extra spice).
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon oil (for cooking)
  • 1/4 cup green onion (garnish)


  1. Peel, de-vein, and clean your shrimp. Be sure to pat it dry after cleaning. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine salt, gochujang, chili flakes, honey, and lemon juice. Whisk until fully combined.
  3. Place your pan on the stove, and turn the stove to medium heat, and drizzle in olive oil.
  4. Add the shrimp to the bowl with the sauce, and toss everything together until the shrimp is completely coated.
  5. Place the shrimp in the pan, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145ºF.
  6. Remove the shrimp from the heat and serve with thinly sliced green onion.


You can serve in tacos with some pickled onions, use them in a salad, or I have loved them as a quick bite in some lettuce wraps. SO delicious and flavorful.
