    Reduce heat to a simmer, cover pan with lid, and let veggies steam until cooked but still crisp (1-2 min). Uncover, remove from heat, and stir in cooked shrimp.

  • Step 5

    Season with salt and pepper to taste, plus additional honey and lemon juice as needed. Mix in chopped basil leaves. Add a few dashes of hot sauce if you like a touch of spice.
