Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe

My Easy Honey Garlic Shrimp is my homemade flavorful interpretation of this classic dish. My shrimp starts with a marinade of soy, honey, cumin, garlic, and other delicious ingredients.

This Easy Honey Garlic Shrimp is marinated before pan-frying until tender and served with a sticky honey soy sauce.


– medium shrimp – less-sodium soy sauce – honey – cumin – minced garlic – lime juice – cilantro – lime

Place the shrimp, soy sauce, honey, cumin, garlic, and lime juice in a large resealable bag. Seal the bag and gently toss the contents together to combine them. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and let it heat.  Pour the shrimp and the marinade into the skillet, cooking the shrimp for about 30 seconds, then flipping them to cook an additional 30 seconds on the other side until pink.

Remove the shrimp from the skillet and cook the marinade for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickening.

Pour the thickened sauce over the cooked shrimp and sprinkle the cilantro on top. Serve with a fresh lime wedge to squeeze over the shrimp.
