Garlic Shrimp Rice Bowl is an easy dinner and incredibly delicious. This shrimp recipe can be served with a variety of vegetables and can easily be made healthier by substituting rice for brown rice, quinoa, or just vegetables. This garlic sauce brings the dish together with a balance of sweet and salty flavors.

This Garlic Shrimp Rice Bowl makes a great weeknight dinner because it can be ready in less than 30 minutes. The longest part of this dish is preparing the rice. Although, if you have rice prepared ahead of time or even have some leftover rice in the fridge, this dish can take 10 minutes to make.

Garlic Shrimp Rice Bowl Recipe
Garlic Shrimp Rice Bowl is an easy dinner and incredibly delicious. Sauteed shrimp in sweet and salty garlic sauce served over fluffy rice.

  • 3/4 cup chicken stock (can substitute vegetable broth)
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 4 large garlic cloves
Rice Bowl:
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 large shallot thinly sliced
  • 1 cup scallions chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  1. Start cooking rice first because it will take the longest. Cook rice according to package instructions.  I recommend cooking rice in chicken or vegetable stock for more flavor. When rice is about half way done, start on the shrimp.
  2. Combine ingredients for the sauce in a mixing bowl, whisk and set aside. 
  3. Preheat a cooking pan over medium heat. Add a little oil to the pan. 
  4. Add thinly sliced shallots and saute until starts to brown. 
  5. Add chopped scallions and shrimp. Saute shrimp until starts to turn opaque and flip to the other side.  
  6. Saute shrimp for another minutes. Stir sauce because corn starch has settled and add it to the pan.
  7. Stir and let it simmer until sauce thickens. When sauce thickens, take off heat and serve over rice.
