Lemon Ginger Honey Glazed Shrimp

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and devein
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lemon ginger-infused honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Step 1: Prepare the Shrimp

Step 2: Make the Marinade
  • In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, freshly grated ginger, lemon ginger-infused honey, and minced garlic until well combined. Taste the marinade and adjust the honey or lemon juice to your preferred level of sweetness and acidity.
Step 3: Marinate the Shrimp
  • Place the shrimp in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag.

  • Seal the dish or bag and refrigerate for at least 20-30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
Step 4: Cook the Shrimp
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a bit of olive oil to prevent sticking.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off, and add them to the hot skillet.
  • Cook the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque. Be careful not to overcook them, as they can become tough.
Step 5: Glaze the Shrimp
  • Pour the reserved marinade into the skillet with the cooked shrimp.
