[Music] okay they’re lazy here with a sweet pea chef and welcome back today we are gonna be making some meal prep shrimp I’m gonna show you how to make a delicious honey garlic shrimp meal prep with instant hot brown rice and some lemon snap peas it’s a high protein low fat and super quick meal prep recipe so let’s get started I’m gonna be using an instant pot to make my steamed brown rice you could also make it on the stove I like using an instant pot because I can just put all the ingredients in there and then let it go I don’t have to fuss with it while I get everything else ready so in our instapoll we’re gonna add in some brown rice then we’re gonna add in the water and stir it together then on our ends pot we’re going to hit the rice option and we’re gonna put it on high pressure and then it’s just gonna go and it’s gonna start cooking and it’ll seal itself on its own so just set it aside if you want to cook your rice on the stove you would basically follow the same rules here you would just put it on a stove all together in a deep pot cover it cook it on low to medium have it simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes until the rice fully absorbs all the water while the rice is cooking we can go ahead and get started with our other parts of our meal prep starting with our honey garlic shrimp and then we can do our lemon snap peas it’s all gonna come together while the rice is cooking making this a very fast meal we need to start with a honey garlic sauce for our shrimp so in a small mixing bowl we’re gonna add in some raw honey followed by low-sodium soy sauce some minced garlic minced fresh ginger crushed red pepper flakes and rice vinegar and we’re gonna whisk all of this together until it’s fully combined then set that aside for a sec now in a large saute pan we are going to heat it over a medium-high heat we’re gonna add in a little bit of olive oil and allow it to get hot then I’m gonna add in my deveined and peeled shrimp into the pan and I’m gonna cook them for about two to three minutes I’m just looking for everything to get pink and not fully cooked all the way through at this point then add in our sauce that we just put together and stir it all together we’re gonna cook this for about two three more minutes while the sauce heats all the way through and finishes the cooking of the shrimp then you can remove this from the heat and allow it to cool then we’re gonna add in our fresh sugar snap peas and we’re gonna toss it in the oil and cook them for about two to three minutes to get everything nicely tossed together and coated now add in some fresh lemon zest sea salt and ground black pepper and toss all of this to coat we’re gonna cook for another three to five minutes what we’re looking for is for the sugar snap peas you become a little bit more tender they still want to be crisp especially because we’re gonna be reheating this meal throughout the week so you don’t want to cook them all the way through here they’re gonna puff up a little bit and they’re gonna start to get a little bit golden and that’s perfect when the rice is done in the instant pot go ahead and allow it to release all of the air and then carefully remove the lid and then you can stir everything up and make sure that the rice has fully absorbed all of the water then set all this aside to cool okay so now we have our brown rice all nicely steamed we have our honey garlic shrimp cooked and ready to go and we have our cooked sugar snap peas with lemon everything is ready to put into our meal prep containers I love using these glass meal prep containers I get asked all the time what I recommend and if you’re gonna buy some I highly suggest these ones I’ll leave the link for you below in the description basically these are very budget-friendly eco-friendly they’re easy to clean easy to reheat easy to store they’re awesome I use them all of the time our shrimp meal is gonna be four different meals throughout the week so I’m gonna spread out four different meal prep containers and I’m gonna start by adding in my steamed brown rice into all of our meal prep containers then on the opposite side of the shrimp I’m gonna add in our lemon snap peas and then over our brown rice I’m gonna add in our cooked shrimp followed by any extra sauce that is left in that pan because all that sauce is gonna be super tasty and it’s gonna season our rice I’m gonna make a really tasty meal then go ahead and seal the lids on tightly and then transfer these into the fridge they are gonna store in your fridge for up to four days making them a super easy grab-and-go meal when you’re ready to eat just go ahead and grab one remove the lid place it in the microwave for one-and-a-half to two minutes on high and you have a delicious honey garlic shrimp with lemon snap peas and steamed brown rice meal ready to eat using shrimp in your meal prep is a really great idea if you’re wanting to save as much time as possible
