Recipe adapted from SallysBakingAddiction.com

Ingredients

  • 1/3 c honey
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 lb uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 T olive oil
  • green onions for garnish

If using frozen shrimp, defrost according to package instructions.  If using fresh shrimp, peel and devein.

Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger together in a medium bowl.

Place the shrimp in a large zip-top bag.  Pour 1/2 of the marinade mixture on top and give it a shake or a stir.  Zip it up, pop it in the refrigerator and allow it to marinate for 15 minutes – or as long as 8 hours.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Place the shrimp in the skillet, discarding the used marinade.  Cook the shrimp on one side until pink – about 45 seconds – then flip the shrimp over, pour in the remaining marinade and cook it all until the shrimp if cooked through – about another minute.

Serve the shrimp with the reserved 1/2 of the marinade and a garnish of sliced green onion.  Brown rice and broccoli or broccolini make excellent side dishes, and the marinade will be good on both.
