Cooked in under 10 minutes, this easy sweet hoisin lemon shrimp meal prep is packed with flavour. Marinate the shrimp overnight or for 30 minutes, and you've got yourself a delicious meal prep! Look no further for this week's meal prep than this sweet hoisin lemon shrimp recipe!
In a bowl, mix together hoisin sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, and garlic powder. You can set some sauce aside as dipping sauce for servings or you can re-make some afterwards with half the amount of each ingredient
Once the sauce is mixed, in a large ziploc bag, combine the shrimp and sauce. Let the shrimp marinate in the sauce for at least 30 minutes to an hour or overnight. While the shrimp is marinading, soak your skewers in water to prevent them from burning if you are not using metal skewers.
Heat oven up to 400F.
Once the shrimp is done marinading, I placed them on the skewers, placed them on a sheet pan, gave them one last brush of the marinade and place it into the oven for 6-8 minutes (cook until your shrimp is firm and pink)
During the marinading time, you can work on your sides if you want (quinoa, rice, roasted potatoes, etc can take up to 30 minutes so it’ll be a great use of time). Since I was just going to blanch the broccoli and serve with a side of corn, I waited to do it while the shrimp would be in the oven. I just did some chores while I waited for the shrimp to marinate. Bonus recipe: how to blanch broccoli: prepare a bowl of ice water and have it next to the stove. Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and then add the broccoli florets and cook until crisp-tender, this should take around 1 to 1.5 minutes. Quickly remove the broccoli once done with a slotted spoon and immediately place in the ice water.
