*you know I got the sauce, you know I’m saucyyyyyy*. If you know me, then you know that I absolutely love saucy food. Creating sauces of my own is one of the best parts of cooking, honestly. I love the complexity of sweet, spicy, tart, and umami flavors that you can create. Also, making my own sauces helps cut down on processed foods while saving a coin or two. I try to keep an assortment of oils, vinegars, and natural sweeteners (honey, maple syrup, agave, brown sugar) in my pantry to pair with different seasonings to make my own concoctions. For this particular recipe, I played off the pungent flavor of ginger and the sweetness of honey to create what I would think is a masterpiece, lol. This shrimp paired amazingly with bok choy. It can also be served with an Asian-inspired salad or rice. Happy cooking!
