Honey Lime Shrimp

I had half a bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer that I wanted to use up. I was making this on the side of my husband's favorite "thai pasta" so I tried to use flavors that would work well with that. I remember seeing a honey grilled shrimp on love deliciousness, so I started with the honey and went from there! These shrimp couldn't be simpler to make but came out so flavorful and delicious. As the shrimp cook, the sauce thickens right up so it adheres to the shrimp which creates wonderful texture and flavor. These would definitely be a crowd-pleaser!

*note: the quantity of the ingredients shown reflect the amount of shrimp I used. Obviously if you have more shrimp, use more of the ingredients so many of the shrimp can be submerged in the sauce!

Adapted from Love Deliciousness

Shrimp (as much as you want!)
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1-2 tbsp honey

Combine lime juice, ginger and honey in a bowl and stir to combine thoroughly. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate at least 30 minutes, tossing shrimp every so often so all pieces of shrimp get in the sauce at some point. When ready to cook shrimp, spray saucepan with non stick spray and heat to medium. Add shrimp, being careful not to add the entire amount of the lime juice mixture to the pan. A little of the sauce is good though. Cook for about 10 minutes, turning shrimp over after about 5. I used pre-cooked shrimp, but if yours is uncooked make sure the shrimp are completely pink before you serve them. The sauce should start to thicken up and adhere to the shrimp after about 10 minutes. When that happens sautee for another few minutes and then serve hot.

I usually do not drop a bunch of remarks, however i did
a few searching and wound up here "Honey Lime Shrimp". And I do have 2
questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic
