Delicious Honey Garlic Shrimp
This honey garlic shrimp is perfect for any meal. As simple as it sounds, this is probably one of the most delicious recipes I have made recently.
I love shrimp, and I can eat shrimp every day.
I used 4 ingredients for the glaze: honey, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper. Prep and cooking takes only 15 minutes in total.
You want to use a lot of garlic so every bite is bursting with the garlicky flavors. Cook it on a cast-iron skillet so all the garlicky and honey goodness sticks to the bottom of the skillet.
Scrap every brown bit left on the skillet as that is the best part.
