Magical Honey Glazed Shrimp

March 28, 2019

Hello and welcome to thee most magical shrimp recipe in all of the internet lands! I am ready to knock your socks off with flavor! I have made this recipe dozens of times and every single time, my family goes on and on about how GOOD these shrimp are.  Sweet, sticky, tangy. These are everything glazed and amazing that you would want shrimp to be.  I have had these with rice and a veggie for a well rounded weeknight meal, on top of a salad which took it to the NEXT LEVEL. And I have also had these alone as a snack to munch on with a glass of wine.  If you buy shrimp as often as we do, you will want to have this in your recipe arsenal to whip out whenever you want to treat your taste buds to something scrumptious. 

Ingredients for 2 Servings:
2 Dozen Large Shrimp, (de-veined, tail on or off}
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
1 Teaspoon Granulated Onion
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Thyme
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika 
4 Tablespoons Butter 
4 Tablespoons Honey 
1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (or juice of half a lemon)

{As with all of my recipes, you should always have your ingredients on hand and laid out  so that you are ready to start cooking!} 

{In a large bowl add your shrimp.  Make sure they are clean and patted dry.  Add in the Dijon mustard and mix well, coating the shrimp completely.}

{Next sprinkle on the seasonings: lemon pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, cayenne pepper, ground thyme and paprika.}

{Mix well to coat the shrimp.}

{Over medium heat, in a hot non-stick skillet, add your butter.  Let it melt and brown for about 2 minutes. The butter will start to smell nutty, which is what you want but be very careful not to let it brown for too long, butter can burn very quickly!}

{After about 2 minutes of the butter browning, add the honey to the pan and stir. You have to move very quickly, this will burn easily, so keep stirring while you add the honey.}

{Next, add the coated and seasoned shrimp to the honey butter mixture.}

{Let the shrimp sear for about 2 minutes per side. The honey butter glaze will bubble and coat the shrimp as they cook. YUM!!}

{Be sure to coat each and every shrimp in the magical honey glaze! Careful not to overcook the shrimp though, this will only take a couple of minutes! Right before taking the shrimp out of the pan, squeeze half of a lemon on top of the shrimp. It's the perfect finishing touch.}

These are sweet and tangy with a kick - so flavorful and satisfying. Honey + Brown Butter is the perfect combination to make them sticky and crave-worthy. You may want to double this recipe - they will disappear the minute you put them out for serving. :)
