Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe for Two

Honey Garlic Shrimp for Two - quick and easy!

This Honey Garlic Shrimp is super easy and delicious, ready in just 20 minutes. The marinade is made by mixing together honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. The sauce is excellent served over rice and steamed veggies on the side which you can prepare while the shrimp is marinating. I use frozen packaged shrimp labeled “peeled, deveined and tails removed” for even easier meal prep but you can also use fresh. This is a perfect dinner or lunch recipe for two, or a romantic date night meal.

Try this recipe with these Brownies and fresh raspberry sauce for dessert.

In a medium bowl, whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger together.

Place the shrimp in a zipped-top bag or a bowl with a lid. Pour 1/2 of the marinade mixture on top, stir to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or for up to 8-12 hours.

 

Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade. We’ll use it when cooking the shrimp.

 

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain the shrimp then place it in the skillet. If you need a new frying pan you can get one here.

 

Cook the shrimp on one side until pink, about 1 minute, and then turn them over.

 

Pour in the reserved marinade and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more.

 

Serve the shrimp topped with the cooked marinade sauce and garnish with green onion or chives if desired. Tastes great served over rice and broccoli.
