Grilled Honey Shrimp

I love to cook and create new recipes to share with family and friends.  This Grilled Honey Shrimp recipe is perfect for warm weather.  I have used a grill outside, or in this case, I’m using a grill pan on the stove top…either way, this dish is delish!  The honey adds a nice sweetness to the shrimp and the red chili pepper flakes add just enough heat to keep things interesting.  These shrimp are perfect on a salad or as the main course with fresh fruit and veggies.  It is super easy and super fast, cooking time is less than 5 minutes!  I hope you enjoy.

Grilled Honey Shrimp

What you need:
One pound of raw, cleaned shrimp
1 tablespoon Red Chili Pepper Flakes
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Get Started!
In a bowl, stir together  Raw Shrimp, 1 tablespoon Red Chili Pepper Flakes, 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil and a pinch of Salt and Pepper.  Simply stir so that all the shrimp are coated with all of the seasonings.  If you like a more mild flavor, eliminate the chili pepper flakes, or only add half the amount :).


Thread the raw shrimp onto skewers.  I use metal skewers because you can wash and reuse them.  If you are using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes before you use them so they don’t burn on the hot stove and ruin your dinner!  1 pound of shrimp will make about 8-10 skewers.


Get Cooking!
Heat a grill pan on high for several minutes before placing skewered shrimp on pan.  Cook for 1 minute.  After 1 minute drizzle honey over each skewer and cook for an additional minute.  The shrimp will begin to change from gray to pink.  Flip shrimp and repeat, cook for 1 minute, drizzle with honey, cook for an additional 1 minute.  And that, my friend, is it!


Dig In!
That is all it takes to make this delicious and tasty recipe.  I told you it was quick and easy!  I would pair this with a fresh green salad for a light lunch, or make it the main course by adding veggies, fruit and bread.  No matter how you serve it, you will love it!


I hope you enjoyed this recipe and try it for yourself!  Comment below with your favorite quick and easy recipe ideas 🙂

    Looks good! Some easy side dishes we have done lately are just steamed veggies. I steamed half a cabbage cut into bite size pieces then drizzled a little bit of olive oil over it , tossed it and seasoned it with salt and it was so yummy. Broccoli and cauliflower done this way are also perfect as a side dish.

    You could skewer stuff like zucchini, onion or even pineapple between the shrimp in your recipe too. The red pepper flakes and honey would taste good on them I bet.
