Honey Garlic Shrimp

Honey Garlic Shrimp is the easy dinner recipe that you didn’t know that you were missing! Only five ingredients and about 5 minutes of work stand between you and dinner!

I have always been a huge seafood fan.

When I was a young girl and would go out to dinner with my parents, my dinner of choice was always a shrimp cocktail. There is just something about well-cooked shrimp that I find simply divine.

They’re tender, a little juicy, and perfectly suited to whatever flavors you want to add.

Honey garlic has always been one of my favorite sauces and marinades- although you could pair copious amounts of garlic with just about anything and I would be on board.

This marinade couldn’t be simpler- honey is mixed with soy sauce and lime to yield a perfect balance of sweet, salty and zippy. Add in a whole mess of minced garlic and some nice jumbo shrimp, and your prep work is done!

This is great to serve on its own, on a salad, or on top of rice.

Helpful Tips to make Honey Garlic Shrimp:

  • To safety thaw frozen shrimp you can defrost them slowly in the refrigerator for about 1 day per pound. Or you can place them in a colander in the sink with cold running water running over them. For safety, the water must be cold.
  • You can buy shrimp that is already peeled and deveined with the tail still on, it looks prettier.
