  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey

  4. Scoop out the shrimp and let the marinade simmer for another 1 to 2 minutes.  Return the shrimp and the cooked broccoli to the skillet and toss until they are coated with sauce.
  5. Divide shrimp among plates and scatter the scallions  and a pinch of sesame seeds on top.  Cut the other lime into sections and put one or two on each plate for squeezing.
