Ingredients1/3 cup honey 1/4 cup soy sauce 1 TB minced garlic optional: 1 tsp minced fresh ginger 1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined 2 tsp olive oil optional: chopped green onion for garnish
Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger (if using) together in a medium bowl. Place shrimp in a large zipped-top bag or tupperware. Pour 1/2 of the marinade mixture on top, give it all a shake or stir, then allow shrimp to marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or for up to 8-12 hours. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp in the skillet. (Discard used marinade) Cook shrimp on one side until pink-- about 45 seconds-- then flip shrimp over. Pour in remaining marinade and cook it all until shrimp is cooked through, about 1 minute more. Serve shrimp with cooked marinade sauce and a garnish of green onion. The sauce is excellent on brown rice and steamed veggies on the side.
