20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp

Shrimp Recipe

This week, are you looking for a quick but wonderful dinner? We’ve got it all right here for you.

A robust marinade of honey, soy sauce, and garlic lend a lot of flavor to these saucy shrimp.

 Which is music to everyone’s taste buds. We add some minced fresh ginger for a little more flavor, but it’s completely optional.

Ingredients

  1. 1/3 cup honey
  2. 1/4 cup soy sauce (we usually use reduced sodium)
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 Tablespoon jarred minced garlic)
  4. 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (optional )
  5. 1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, peeled & deveined
  6. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  7. optional for garnish: chopped green onion

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger (if using). Half will be used for the marinade in step 2 and the other half will fry the shrimp in step 3.
  2. Place shrimp in a large sealable container or plastic bag with a zippered top. Pour half of the marinade/sauce mixture on top, give everything a good shake or stir, and let the shrimp marinate for 15 minutes or up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Refrigerate the remaining marinade after covering it. (As a timesaving suggestion, we prepare broccoli and microwave some fast brown rice while the shrimp marinates.)
  4. In a pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. In a skillet, place the shrimp. (Remove the used marinade.) Cook for 45 seconds on one side, then flip to cook for another 45 seconds. Pour in the remaining marinade/sauce and simmer until the shrimp are fully cooked, about 1-2 minutes more.
  5. Arrange the shrimp on a plate with the prepared marinade sauce and a green onion garnish. On brown rice with steaming vegetables on the side, the sauce tastes delicious.

Also, note

  1. Do you want to thicken the sauce? Some readers add 1 teaspoon cornstarch to the second half of the sauce that will be cooked in step 3 to thicken it. This thickens the sauce and prevents it from being as runny. To do so, whisk together 1 teaspoon cornstarch and 1 teaspoon warm water using a fork. Stir the cornstarch into the sauce once it has dissolved before using it in step 3.
  2. Garlic cloves (about 2 teaspoons minced): If using fresh garlic, minced 2 cloves (approximately 2 teaspoons minced). Use 1 Tablespoon of refrigerated jarred minced garlic.
  3. Shrimp: You can remove or keep the tail. Fresh shrimp is preferred, however, frozen shrimp can still be used. Before marinating and cooking, allow the meat to thaw.
  4. Thaw, marinade, then cook frozen cooked shrimp as indicated. All you’ll be doing is cooking up the shrimp in the sauce.
  5. It’s debatable if we should consume the leftover marinade. While you can boil it to remove any contaminants, the flavor may vary. Do whatever you want. We just use half of the sauce for the marinade in this recipe so we have extra for cooking. (In step 3, we discard the used marinade.)

  2.  ¾ teaspoon kosher salt divided
  3.  1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper divided
  4.  2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  5. 1 small red onion chopped
  6.  2 cloves garlic minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  7. 1 14.5-ounce can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes in their juices
  8.  1 teaspoon dried oregano
  9. 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  10. ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  11. 1 teaspoon honey
  12. 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  13. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice from about ½ medium lemon
  14.  1-ounce can of artichoke hearts drained and quartered
  15.  ½ cup pitted Kalamata olives
  16.  2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  17.  For serving: rice whole wheat couscous, crusty bread, pasta (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit with a rack in the center. Dry the shrimp and toss them in a mixing bowl with 12 teaspoons salt and 14 teaspoons black pepper. Set aside after tossing to coat.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the remaining 14 teaspoons of salt and 14 teaspoons of black pepper over the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Reduce the heat as needed to soften the onion without browning it. Cook for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is aromatic.

Storage Tips

  1. To be kept. Refrigerate leftovers for up to three days in an airtight storage container.
  2.  In order to reheat. In a large skillet on the stove, slowly reheat Mediterranean shrimp over medium-low heat.
    Also, I think leftovers would be good as a salad over lettuce or spaghetti when served cold.
  3. You should not freeze this meal because the texture of the shrimp may turn mushy once thawed.

Frequently Asked Questions on Shrimp Recipe

2. Is It Better to Cook or Eat Raw Shrimp?

Oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, sage, tarragon, and thyme additionally, are some herbs and blends that go well with shrimp.


4. Are Frozen Shrimp Good?

Let us say this: Unless you’re certain that the “fresh” shrimp at the market are truly fresh-off-the-boat, frozen shrimp are a much better bet.

Avoid shrimp that smell like ammonia (a sure sign that they’re bad) or have mushy or slimy shells (again, not a good sign)


5. how Long Should You Marinate Shrimp?

It is determined by the marinade. 30 minutes or fewer should suffice if the fruit is acidic (lemon, lime, orange, etc.).

Also, If you cook it any longer, the acid will break down the delicate shrimp meat, turning it mushy.

However, You could marinate for an hour or more if your marinade is non-acidic (olive oil, garlic, herbs).


6. Why Does Shrimp Get Rubbery?

Rubbery shrimp is the unfortunate and embarrassing effect of overcooking shrimp.

It lacks the subtle snap that you feel when biting into a juicy, well-cooked crab.

Moreso, Shrimp, unlike more durable salmon or squid, cooks in a matter of minutes, thus a lack of attention can completely influence the outcome.

9. How Long Does It Take to Cook Shrimp?

2 to 3 mins is preferable. Depending on the size of the shrimp, fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown on the exterior and opaque in the center.

Preheat a pan over medium-high heat to stir-fry or sauté shrimp. Butter, margarine, olive oil, or flavored cooking oil are all good options.


10. Is It Possible to Fry Frozen Shrimp?

Is it Safe to Cook Frozen Shrimp? Totally! Shrimp are so little and quick to prepare.

That it’s difficult to undercook or serve them underdone, unlike chicken or salmon, which must be cooked to a specific temperature to assure their safety.

Shrimps are flavorful and full of flavor, with a dash of semi-sweet and salty flavor.

They have a soft texture and taste comparable to white fish. They go well with rice and, sometimes, curry.
