Ingredients

1/3 cup of honey
1/4 cup of soy sauce
2 garlic cloves (finely minced)
1 tsp minced ginger (optional)
1 lb medium of uncooked shrimp (peeled and deveined)
2 tsp of olive oil
Green onion chopped (for garnish but optional)

Method

Step 1

Take a medium sized bowl and add soy sauce, honey, ginger (if you are using) and garlic. Whisk it nicely. You will be using half this mixture for the marinade that will take place in the next step while the other half will be used for cooking all the shrimps.

Step 2

Place the shrimps in a huge sealable container or even a zipped-top bag. Pour half the marinade on top and give it a good shake or you could even stir it. Keep the entire container or bag inside the refrigerator and let all the shrimp marinate for about 15 minutes. You could also let it stay for about 8-12 hours. Stow away the other half of the marinate mixture in the refrigerator. If you want to save some time, you can steam some broccoli and also microwave some brown rice as the shrimps are marinating.

Step 3

On a medium-high flame, heat some olive oil using a skillet. Remove the shrimps from the refrigerator and put them on the skillet. One the shrimps have turned pink on one side, flip them. Close to 45 seconds on either side should be enough. Take the other half of the marinade that you had refrigerate separately and pour it in. Cook it for another 1-2 minutes until the shrimps are cooked through.

Step 4

Garnish some green onion on this dish and it is ready to be served.
