Honey Lime Shrimp

Another winning recipe found on Pinterest- Honey Lime Shrimp! 
 I always like to have a bag of Costco's frozen peeled
 and deveined raw shrimp in the freezer
 and it is perfect for this recipe.

 I grilled them indoors on a cast iron grill pan.
I served it  over brown rice with roasted asparagus on top! 

Pretty and Healthy
This is an easy recipe for a weekday dinner, but tasty and pretty enough to serve company.

Honey Lime Shrimp

 serves 2


1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

 1/4 cup olive oil

2 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


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 add any oil or butter to the pan, as the marinade has enough oil in it to keep the shrimp from 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!
