Honey Lime Shrimp

I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest when I was looking for a new shrimp recipe.  This one sounded perfect and something that I knew the whole family would enjoy!  We love shrimp in our house and cook it a lo,t so finding new recipes is always fun!   This recipe is a perfect combo of sweet and savory…with a bit of a kick.  Use the red pepper flakes to your liking.  My kids don’t love too much spice, so I didn’t use much….but if you like spice, add more!  I served it with rice and salad and it was amazing! The shrimp get a little crunch to them too, which makes the flavor almost explode in your mouth!  YUM!

Honey Lime Shrimp

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/2 cup olive oil

4 T honey

juice of one lime

zest of one small lime, or half a large lime

4 cloves garlic, smashed

1 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

red pepper flakes

***********************************************************************

Combine all the  ingredients in a ziplock bag.

Add shrimp

Put in fridge and marinate for 30-60 minutes.  Toss in bag a few times to get them well coated.

Remove from fridge approx 10 minutes prior to cooking.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add your shrimp to the pan in a single layer, making sure they are not too crowded; you can always cook them in more than one batch.

Let them cook on one side for about a minute, until they curl up and start to turn pink. Flip them over, and cook for another 30 seconds or so, until the shrimp are opaque. Remove from the pan, and serve immediately over rice!

Enjoy!
