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!
