To serve it up, you can plate it with a side of rice and a sprinkle of green onion on top. Honestly, there’s no wrong way to serve these up, but make sure to drizzle the extra sauce on top, no matter which way you choose. And when the sauce soaks into the rice, it’s so good.
This is an irresistible, fuss-free dinner recipe, and I’m pretty confident you’re going to love it. So let me show you how to make it.
How to prepare honey garlic shrimp
To prepare, place the honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl and stir well to mix. Place the shrimp into a separate bowl and pour 1/3 of the sauce on top. Toss to coat the shrimp, then marinate for 15-20 minutes.
In a pan, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add the shrimp (discarding any leftover marinade) and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until pink and just barely cooked through. Pour the remaining 2/3 sauce into the pan and bring to a simmer, stirring with the shrimp as it slightly reduces and warms through, for about a minute.
Turn off the heat, stir in the cilantro or parsley, and top with sliced green onions before serving.
