honey garlic shrimp

 

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup soy sauce (I use reduced sodium)

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined

2 teaspoons olive oil

Chopped green onion for garnish

 

 

 

 

Putting the Breaks On!

  1. Rinse and devein shrimp.
  2. Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger together in a medium bowl.
  3. Place shrimp in a large zipped-top bag. Pour 1/2 of the marinade mixture on top, give it all a shake or stir, then allow shrimp to marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or for up to 8-12 hours. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in the skillet. (Discard used marinade.) Cook shrimp on one side until pink– about 45 seconds– then flip shrimp over. Pour in remaining marinade and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more.

Serve shrimp with cooked marinade sauce and a garnish of green onion.
