Quick Honey Lime Shrimp
Shrimp is literally one of my favorite foods because it is so versatile and cooks up in a pinch! Ever have those days when the last place you want to be is in the kitchen? I have felt that way all this week because I am actually sick…who gets sick during the unofficial start to the summer? Anyhow, since I sure as heck wasn’t cooking anything fancy I took out a 1 lb bag of shrimp to defrost, and surveyed my pantry and fridge.
Fresh scallions/herbs √
Brown rice √
Those are literally all the elements you need to make a quick marinade to later pan-fry (5 mins or less) with your shrimp. Easy peasy, limey squeezy. Honestly, it is so easy, so fresh, and so yummy! A total hot weather type of meal because you can even make the rice in the microwave these days…hello minute rice!
Plus, it reheats perfectly, and can be a good mix up for meal prep and adding a little more flavorful burst of protein to your menu.
Want to make this Quick Honey Lime Shrimp?
Here is exactly what you need and how to whip it up:
- 1 lb bag of shrimp
- 3 tablespoons of raw honey
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup of lime juice
- 3 cloves of mashed garlic
- 1/4 tsp of adobo spice
- salt, pepper to taste
- Scallions for dressing
- Brown rice for serving
Before you head out for the day, add your patted dry and defrosted shrimp to a large zipper bag along with all of the marinade ingredients (sans the rice & scallions). Marinate all day or at least a few hours before adding all the ingredients into a stir fry pan and cooking for like 5-10 minutes over low/med heat, or until the shrimp go from grey to orange.
Serve with brown rice, and limes to garnish.
