I never run out of shrimp in my freezer.
I always have a pack or two frozen shrimp that I can quickly whip up for dinner.
Shrimp is so versatile and delicious, and this garlic honey lime shrimp recipe is no exception.
Shrimp is really not that expensive when they are on sale.
For 1 lb bag of shrimp, you can get it for $6-$7 or cheaper. They are shelled, deveined, and ready for cooking.
You can use whole peeled shrimp (no tail-on) and they are cheaper.
When you have good shrimp, all you need are some basic ingredients: garlic, honey, salt, cayenne pepper and squirts of fresh lime juice.
Serve this garlic honey lime shrimp with pasta, noodles, or cilantro lime rice.
I served it with my creamy garlic Parmesan fettuccine and dinner was delicious!
