Tips for the honey garlic shrimp recipe

This honey garlic shrimp recipe is succulent and makes the perfect quick, healthy dinner when you don’t have much time to cook! Here are a few tips for the best shrimp recipe ever:

  • Try as much as possible to buy wild-caught shrimp. Choose large shrimp because they tend to be juicier and meatier.
  • We recommend using fresh shrimp, but you can use frozen. Thaw shrimp in several baths of cold water before marinating and cooking.
  • We have the habit of leaving the shrimp tails on. It adds more flavor and looks prettier. But you can remove them if you want.

What to serve the honey garlic shrimp instead of rice?

If you’re extra hungry, you can serve this honey garlic shrimp recipe with cauliflower rice to stay on the lower carbs side. Otherwise, a side of grits would also be awesome.

How and how long to keep the honey garlic shrimp leftovers?

These honey garlic shrimps will keep for up to 2 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Reheat gently covered in a skillet, with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.
