In this post I’ll be sharing an easy Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe.

The entire family will love these flavorful shrimp. This is an easy recipe and would work great during the busy week for quick meals. Make this dish in the skillet or on the grill!

Honey garlic shrimp are a wonderful combination of sweet and savory. I’m a huge fan of shrimp and love to enjoy it as often as I can. Shrimp is just so easy and cooks up fast so you don’t spend a lot of time over a hot stove preparing dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Shrimp, shelled and deveined (tails on work too)
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 4 tbs Butter
  • 1/2 c Honey
  • 1/2 c Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • Cracked Black Pepper

Skillet Version:
Tip: Use frozen cooked shrimp as a time saver in this skillet version
 
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and butter and melt.
 
In a liquid measuring cup, add soy sauce then honey and whisk together. Add to the skillet and whisk together with the melted butter and olive oil. Add cracked black pepper.
 
Allow sauce to simmer and reduce by 1/3, then add shrimp. If you’re using frozen cooked shrimp the shrimp will only need to heat through, maybe 4-5 minutes.
 
Serve over rice, or the shrimp are great by themselves.
 
Grill Version:
Tip: Large uncooked shrimp work best for the grill
 
Melt butter in the microwave.
 
In a measuring cup, add soy sauce then honey and whisk together. Add garlic, olive oil and melted butter and whisk to combine.
 
Divide the sauce in half.
 
Skewer shrimp and lay in a shallow dish, cover with half of the sauce and let marinade for 1 hour.
 
Grill the shrimp and baste the remaining sauce over the shrimp during cooking.
Yield: 1 pound of shrimp
