STICKY HONEY GARLIC BUTTER SHRIMP

 ½ cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
juice of one small lemon
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

g
reen onions, for garnish

In a small bowl whisk honey, soy sauce, garlic and lemon. Add half of the sauce to the shrimp and let marinate for 30 minutes.

In a medium sized skillet at the butter. Add the shrimp and discard marinade. Season with salt and pepper. Turn the heat to medium high. Cook until the shrimp turns pink about 2 minutes each side. Add the reserved marinade and pour over shrimp. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken and coats the shrimp. Garnish with green onions.

Tonight I am serving over Orzo but you can use rice or your favorite pasta along with grilled asparagus and mushrooms, side salad and fruit.
