15 Minute Honey Sriracha Shrimp Rice Bowls

I have a problem.

I can’t stop watching New Girl. I started watching it (again) from the beginning on Netflix and I’m straight up addicted. Instead of turning on the news to watch people hate on or stick up for Trump, I simply turn on New Girl and tune out reality. The first two seasons are pure magic. I gave up on it when Jess decided to have a baby in real life and Megan Fox comes in to fill her void. Nothing against Megan Fox. She’s one of the most beautiful humans to stare at. But I watch the show to see Zooey Deschanel shake and wiggle and sing with her monotone voice. I hear that this year is the last season with only a few episodes and it makes me so sad. All those characters are so damn great.

Speaking of great, can we talk about how good The Crown is? I’m obviously watching far too much TV to put off the house cleaning and decluttering I need to do. But for real…how good is that show? It makes me not want to be in the royal family and have endless money. Just kidding, endless money would be rad. But being proper and following rules sounds terrible. One day last week, I didn’t brush my teeth until 6pm. I PLAY BY MY OWN RULES, B*TCH!

Speaking of things other than just melting into the couch and pretending I’m roommates with Schmidt…last weekend we had our annual gym holiday party. When I first started at the gym, the holiday parties were hosted AT the gym. But after someone cutting part of their finger off, multiple vomits on the floor, someone locking themselves in the bathroom, a fight breaking out (which was near a pregnant woman and ended in the couple leaving the gym), drinks spilled in every crevice leading to sticky floors for months, and many, many homeless people thinking the gym was an open invitation for them to make themselves at home…the parties finally moved to an outside location. Aka sketchy bars. And this year was no different. One of the members of our gym owns this suuuupes sketchy bar so he let us come in early and take over. Luckily, I had 3 margaritas beforehand so I was ready to step foot in an overcrowded, cologne-infested bar….and then dance my face off. It’s so fun getting to know people who you work out with based on how they dance. One white guy even broke out in a little salsa. What the?

The best part was that the night didn’t end like many of my previous annual holiday parties have. This time around, I was home on the couch by 11pm (watching New Girl…stop judging) and woke up sober and happy as can be on Sunday. No Sunday scarys for this girl.

You know what else isn’t scary? This recipe. Do yourself a favor and buy cauliflower rice in the freezer section. Don’t try to rice it yourself. I did that for years and it’s hell. It smells bad and the cauliflower crumbs go everywhere. So just buy it, ok?! OK!! Loveyoubye.

  • Author: juli
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x



For the rice:

  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 bag cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste

For the shrimp:

  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1/2 pound deveined, peeled raw shrimp
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sriracha

For garnish:

  • fresh mint
  • green onions, chopped


  1. Place a large saute pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of ghee then add cauliflower rice, garlic powder and salt. Cook for about 15 minutes, tossing to keep the cauliflower rice from browning too much.
  2. While the cauliflower rice cooks, place another large saute pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of ghee. Pat shrimp dry then sprinkle with salt. Once pan is hot, add all shrimp and cook for 2 minutes per side. Once cooked through, remove shrimp and set aside. To the pan, add coconut aminos, honey, and sriracha. Whisk together and turn heat up to medium-high heat. Bring to a low boil. This will take about 8 minutes or less. Once the sauce has reduced and coats the back of a spoon, add shrimp back to the pan with the sauce and toss to coat the shrimp in the sauce.
  3. Place rice in 2 bowls then add the shrimp and sauce to each bowl. Garnish with mint and green onions!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. This looks delicious!! I love shrimp! I also LOVE THE CROWN also!!! I have watched both seasons and don’t want to wait on the next season to come out! They need to make the seasons longer! I haven’t
    seen New girl yet so maybe I should start watching New Girl that? Love your recipes and personality! ????

  2. I am rewatching New Girl too!!! It’s the best for destressing. I can never decide which character I love the most, the all crack me up.

  3. You have to start watching The Alienist! It’s on TNT, but you can stream it for free on their website, too. Very 19th century, but even if that’s not your thing, it’s right up your (and my!) alley in terms of all things crime-y and murder-y. It’s only two episodes in, but I’m totally hooked.

  4. The Crown is THE BEST! In fact, just last month I finished a biography of Queen Elizabeth II that was simply fantastic, and all because of my love of The Crown!!

    I’m binging Party of Five on Netflix now. No judgment here.

    And…I just finished binging the Court Junkie podcast. Have you tried it? More true crime, but unique cases and the host is really great. I highly recommend!

  5. yessss I have cauliflower and some shrimp in my freezer and was just wondering this morning what I should do with them for dinner tonight. Perfect timing, I can’t wait to make this!

    Hi there! Any specific brands of cauliflower rice you like? Never looked for it in the frozen section – is it a pretty common thing or would I only be able to get it at say Whole Foods? Thanks!

  7. I just started watching New Girl because of you and it’s so good! I can’t believe no one else has recommended it to me. You also got me hooked on Orange is the New Black so I think we have the same taste in TV. 😉

  8. Duuuude! I made this tonight and it is awesome! The husband doesn’t like cauliflower rice, but he loved it like this! I will definitely add this to the list of common meals I cook.
