Total time: 10 minutes
500g fresh peeled prawns
1 cup broccoli florets frozen or fresh
1 tablespoon sesame oil
For the Sauce
1 teaspoon garlic minced
½ teaspoon ginger minced
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
Place broccoli florets in a small bowl, fill with a few teaspoons of water and steam in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Combine the sauce ingredients and divide it into half. Marinate the prawns with one half of the sauce for 5-10 minutes (or up to 24 hours).
Heat a heavy-duty skillet to high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to the pan then add the marinated prawns. Sear them on both sides in batches of 2 until browned, about 1 minute per side. Add the broccoli to the pan, drizzle with remaining sauce, and mix well to combine.
