Description

Try out the much-loved sauce with over 2 million shares. This sweet and savory honey garlic shrimp skillet is super easy with only FIVE ingredients and cooks in less than 15 minutes! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb. jumbo or large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

SAUCE

  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced / 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Combine the sauce ingredients and divide the sauce in half.
  2. Marinate the shrimp with one-half of the sauce for 15-30 minutes. Discard marinade.
  3. Over medium-high heat in a skillet, pan-sear the shrimp in some oil. Sear them on both sides until cooked, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  4. Dish and serve hot, drizzled with the remaining sauce and fresh parsley or green onions as an optional garnish.
  5. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Rubbing the shrimp onto the stuck on bits (fond) blackens the shrimp and gives it a charred look and smoky taste.
  • This recipe sears better in a cast iron pan and may not perform as well with caramelized bits in non-stick pans.
  • Add more flavor – Add some heat with a few dashes of red pepper flakes. You can cut the sweetness of the sauce with some apple cider vinegar or a drizzle of lime juice. For a smoky flavor, do a finishing drizzle with sesame oil or sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  • Garnish – Garnish with some freshly chopped parsley or green onions.
