Honey Lime Shrimp

Serves two. The sweet honey gets a little caramelized and crunchy in the hot pan, and the red pepper flakes and lime add just enough kick to cut through the sweetness. Best of all, they took about 10 minutes to make, start to finish..perfect for a quick weeknight meal! Can serve with a spicy corn dish on the side, as well as some chopped heirloom tomatoes sprinkled with salt and pepper, or over brown rice with your vegetable of choice on the side, pack them into some warmed flour tortillas with shredded romaine and some sour cream for shrimp tacos.

Ingredients

  • 1/2

    pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1/4

    cup olive oil12 T honey

  • juice of one small lime, or half a large lime (2-3 T)

  • zest of one small lime, or half a large lime

  • 2

    cloves garlic, smashed

  • 1/2

    tsp kosher salt

  • 1/4

    tsp black pepper

  • 1/4

    tsp red pepper flakes

Directions

1. In a large ziploc bag, combine all the marinade ingredients. When everything is well-combined, add the shrimp, squeeze as much air as possible out of the bag, and close it up. Place it in the fridge. 2. Let the shrimp marinate for 30-60 minutes, flipping the bag around once or twice during that time, so that all the shrimp stay evenly covered in the marinade. 3. When you're ready to cook, take the shrimp out of the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; there is no need to sticking to the pan. (if you would prefer to use the grill for these, you can thread them onto skewers and toss them on the grill at this point.) 4. 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!
