Shrimp reminds me of family gatherings because my dad always picks up shrimp with cocktail sauce as an appetizer. Our family destroys that app in minutes! My family loves shrimp!
I haven't always been a fan but as I get older I like shrimp more and more. Especially when it's in recipes like this honey garlic shrimp. I love to eat it to switch it up from chicken and beef and it's great for meatless Monday or Fridays during lent!
If you're familiar around here you know I'm a sucker for sheet pan meals like sheet pan chicken fajitas, sheet pan sausage and veggies and butternut squash and apples. They're so easy and you only have one pan to clean!
Ingredients for Honey Garlic Shrimp:
Shrimp is the star of the show of course. Try to buy fresh shrimp from your grocery store, but you can probably find it frozen too. You can take the tails off before you bake them or you can leave them on because they look prettier. Just make sure everyone takes them off before eating!
Coconut aminos is a large portion of the sauce and it's essentially soy sauce, minus the soy. It tastes just like it! You can get it at most grocery stores, especially ones like Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
Garlic makes a big portion of the sauce's flavor so we're using 4 cloves in this recipe!
Honey is the other star of the sauce. It makes this sauce a little sticky and a little sweet!
Is Honey Garlic Shrimp Healthy?

What goes with honey garlic shrimp?
You can serve it over rice or you can add some extra broccoli to the pan to make lots of veggies on the side. You could also serve it over rice noodles or quinoa!
How to Make Honey Garlic Shrimp:
Start by marinading the shrimp for 15 minutes. While it's marinating, start roasting the broccoli because it takes longer to cook. When it's done marinating, remove the broccoli from the oven and push it to one side. Add the shrimp to the other side of the pan and put everything back in the oven for 10-12 more minutes or until the shrimp is translucent and cooked. Serve with extra sauce!
