Sriracha Lime Shrimp

As the girl with 3 bottles of Sriracha in her house, this shrimp recipe is one of my favourite ways to use up some of that Sriracha. It is full of flavour, perfectly seared, and has a hit of spice that sneaks up from you from the Sriracha sauce! When you don’t have a ton of time, you’re going to want to have this healthy shrimp meal prep recipe in your back pocket.

What You’ll Need To Make Sriracha Lime Shrimp

  • olive oil
  • butter
  • shrimp (rinsed, deveined and shells removed)
  • Sriracha
  • soy sauce
  • lime juice
  • salt

How To Make Sriracha Lime Shrimp

  • Heat up a cast-iron pan over medium high heat and add in the olive oil and butter. 
  • Add the shrimp. Avoiding moving the shrimp too much – let the shrimp sear on one side before flipping them over and letting the other side sear.
  • Add in the Sriracha, soy sauce, lime juice, and salt. Stir the shrimp and make sure the shrimps are all fully coated.
  • Once the shrimps are all perfectly seared to your liking/cooked through, remove from heat and serve.

Tips and Notes on Making Sriracha Lime Shrimp

  • I use both olive oil and butter because the olive oil is to prevent burning while the butter is there to add flavour.
  • I suggest using a well seasoned cast-iron which will sear your shrimp perfectly and add that seared flavour to your shrimp or a good quality non-stick pan.
  • If your cast-iron isn’t large enough, sear the shrimp in two batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  • If you find Sriracha a little too hot on its own, cut it with some honey!

How To Make Sriracha Lime Shrimp into a Meal Prep

  • Meal prep: store the cooked shrimp in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
  • To turn this shrimp into an easy Sriracha Lime Shrimp meal prep, I paired it with some coconut rice and snap peas. Here’s my recipe for stovetop coconut rice and Instant Pot coconut rice. It can be easily made at the same time as the shrimp.
