Honey Garlic Shrimp

Honey Garlic Shrimp – easy skillet shrimp with honey garlic sauce with only 4 ingredients. The BEST honey garlic shrimp recipe ever!

If there is one ingredient that I cook the best, it’s probably shrimp. The reason is simple: I love shrimp and I can eat shrimp every day, so naturally, I tend to cook shrimp very well. This honey garlic shrimp is a perfect example. As simple as it sounds, this is probably one of the most delicious recipes I have made recently.

This honey garlic shrimp recipe is inspired by The Cooking Jar but I created my own recipe. If you have good quality shrimp, you don’t need a lot of ingredients. I used 4 ingredients for the glaze: honey, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper. Prep and cooking takes only 15 minutes in total.

You want to use a lot of garlic so every bite is bursting with the garlicky flavors. Cook it on a cast-iron skillet so all the garlicky and honey goodness stick to the bottom of the skillet. Scrap every brown bit left on the skillet as they are the best part. After I was done eating, I only wished that I had made more. Enjoy!
