  • 3 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp crushed chili flakes optional
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced (about 1 Tablespoon)
  • 1 lb medium uncooked shrimp peeled & deveined
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbs sliced green onion optional garnish


  • Whisk honey, soy sauce, chili flakes (if using), ginger, and garlic, together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, add shrimp and olive oil. Season the shrimp with salt and ground pepper and toss to coat.
  • Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Place the shrimp into the pan in an even layer. Cook the shrimp on one side until nicely seared, about 1-2 minutes. Flip the shrimp over and cook for another minute or until they’re just cooked but still a little translucent in the center.
  • Pour in the honey garlic marinade and cook until the shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more. If desired, remove the shrimp from pan so they don’t overcook, and reduce the sauce a little to thicken it (keep an eye on the sauce while reducing, the honey makes the sauce easy to burn if you forget about it on the stove).
  • Serve the shrimp with the reduced sauce. Garnish with green onion, if desired.
