Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Shrimp washed and peeled
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Neutral flavored oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 4-5 Cloves Garlic minced
  • ¼ Cup Soy sauce or Tamari
  • ¼ Cup Honey or Mike’s Hot Honey (spicy)
  • 1 Tbsp. Lime juice optional
  • To Taste Salt and pepper
  • To Garnish Fresh Basil or cilantro, optional 

Instructions

  • In a small prep bowl mix together the soy sauce, honey and lime juice then set aside.
  • Peel and devein the shrimp
  • To devein: carefully hold a shrimp in one hand and using a sharp chef knife cut the back side of the shrimp making a small cut the entire length of the shrimp.
  • Pull out the vein (usually it’s dark in color but it may have no color if clean). Discard the vein and set the shrimp aside in a clean bowl.
  • Gently wash the shrimp in cold water, then pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Season the shrimp with salt and pepper, set aside.
  • On the stove top heat a saute pan on high heat and add 2-3 Tablespoons of oil.
  • Once the pan is hot add the shrimp and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Then transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low and In the same pan heat another tablespoon of oil.
  • Add in the garlic and carefully cook for 2 or so minutes stirring often so it doesn’t burn.
  • When the garlic is a light golden, add the liquid honey mixture and cook for a few minutes until it thickens slightly.
  • Add the shrimp back to the pan, coating it well with the sauce and finish cooking it through if needed.
  • Plate it up to enjoy right away or plate for meal prep. Garnish with fresh basil if desired & enjoy!
