Dinner for Two/ Seafood

Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe for Two

Honey Garlic Shrimp

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.

Scroll to the bottom for a full recipe card.

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.

How to make Honey Garlic Shrimp:

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.

Preheat the oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Drain the shrimp then place it in the skillet. Click for a cast iron skillet.

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.
