Orange-Ginger Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe

For a delicious and healthy dinner, try this prawn stir fry recipe with orange and ginger. 


– 2 Tbsp coconut oil or avocado oil – 2 tsp toasted sesame oil – 1/2 yellow onion diced – 2 large carrots peeled and chopped – 1/2 red bell pepper cut into match stick – 1/2 yellow bell pepper cut into match stick – 1 large crown broccoli chopped into floret – 4 cloves garlic minced – 2 tsp fresh ginger peeled and grated – 1 1/2 pounds raw shrimp deveined – 5 Tbsp coconut aminos + more to taste* – 2 oranges zested – 2 Tbsp orange juice – 1 Tbsp honey** – 1 Tbsp red chili sauce such as sriracha – 2 tsp tapioca flour – 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional, optional – 1 Tbsp sesame seed For Serving: – 4 cups white rice steamed – 1 bunch green onion chopped

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok on medium-high. Stir frequently while sautéing onion and carrots for 3 minutes to soften. Sauté the remaining vegetables for 3–5 minutes to soften. 

Step 1


Moving vegetables to the sides makes room for prawns. Cook the prawns in a single layer on the skillet for 2-3 minutes per side (they don't need to be done). 

Step 2

Add the remaining sauce ingredients in order. Stir frequently until the prawns are cooked and the sauce thickens, 10–12 minutes. Increase tapioca flour if the sauce is thin. 

Step 3

Stir fry with sea salt, orange zest, ginger, or coconut aminos to taste. Add fresh lime juice if desired. 

Step 4

Prawn stir fry over cooked white or brown rice, zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice or vegetable rice. Steamed white rice with coconut aminos goes well with prawn stir fry. 

Step 5

I prefer this healthy prawn stir fry fresh, but you can make it ahead. Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days.
