honey garlic shrimp and broccoli... 20 minutes (plus marinating)

the goods:

1 pound shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 cups broccoli florets
cooked rice, for serving

In a small bowl, combine garlic, ginger, honey, and soy sauce. Place raw shrimp in a large zip-top bag, pour 1/3 of the honey-soy sauce into the bag, then seal and massage the bag to coat the shrimp. Let shrimp marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.
Warm a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of reserved honey-soy sauce to pan . Toss in broccoli and cook until tender, 5 minutes. Remove broccoli from skillet and set aside. Remove shrimp from marinade and place in skillet (careful not to crowd the pan, you may need to do this in a couple of batches). Cook for 1 minute on each side and transfer to plate with broccoli. When shrimp are cooked, return all shrimp and broccoli to pan. Heat for 2 minutes, tossing to combine. Serve over rice, drizzled with remaining honey-soy sauce.
