Ingredients list for the Honey Garlic Shrimp Skillet
- 1 lb (450g) shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tail on
- Salt and pepper
- Sliced green onions, for garnish
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
1. Rinse and pat shrimp dry; season with salt and pepper. You can thread shrimp on toothpicks for better handling. Grill or pan fry the shrimp on medium heat until the shrimp are cooked through, approximatively 5-10 minutes, flipping as needed.
2. While the shrimp is cooking, mix together lime juice, honey, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce and garlic. Add a little of the sauce to shrimp after flipping. Transfer remaining sauce in a saucepan, turn the heat up to medium high and reduce to obtain a thick, glossy sauce that you’ll spoon a bit over the shrimp at the end of cooking. Enjoy immediately with sliced green onions on top and the remaining of thickened sauce on the side.
