In a small bowl, mix water, honey, rice vinegar, soy sauce, corn starch, sherry, Chinese Five Spice, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes and set aside. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add red bell pepper and onion, stirring and cooking just until onion begins to brown and caramelize, 2 to 3 min. Stir in broccoli and mushrooms and cook for 2 min., or until broccoli begins to soften. Add shrimp and zucchini, cooking for another 2 min., or until shrimp begins to shrink and turn pink.
