Honey Garlic Shrimp

My favorite way to make shrimp: this healthy honey garlic shrimp! Paired with some zoodles and this meal is a perfect 10 minute dinner! Also, the honey garlic sauce is only four ingredients. Woooo for fast + easy dinners that don’t have a million ingredients.

I cook the shrimp in my cast iron skillet because it’s the fastest way I think to cook shrimp. In my other shrimp recipes ( Shrimp Stir Fry and Shrimp Stuffed Sweet Potatoes)I baked the shrimp but if you don’t mind getting a pan dirty- cooking in the skillet is wayyyy faster! Just make sure you use some type of oil or else they stick.

I used coconut aminos which is a great soy sauce substitute if you are gluten free! It seriously tastes just like soy sauce + is packed with amino acids. You can pick a bottle up at most health food stores, I use the Trader Joes brand typically!

I wanted to keep things simple with zoodles, broccoli, and mushrooms to pair with the shrimp. The nice thing is, you don’t need a bunch of toppings to make these shrimp taste good! Pair them with the basics and you’re good to go!

I cooked the shrimp in one skillet and cooked the zoodles and mushrooms in a separate pan. I love love love using my Kitchenaid spiralizer, seriously makes spiralizing sooo easy, The broccoli was leftover and I tossed it in the skillet to heat it up but it was already cooked!

Shrimp are one of my favorite foods to have leftover because they hold their taste and texture well. Add them in with some rice and leftover veggies- you have a great new meal that still tastes amazing! Hope you love this go to honey garlic shrimp recipe!
