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 here 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.
