I am always playing around with new recipes and this time I had a pound of shrimp and I wanted to make a quick to prepare dinner. I mixed together a honey soy bourbon marinade. This is the perfect under 30 minute dish and absolutely sensational. I served this along side vegetable fried rice. Keep this recipe handy when time is short and you are hungry!
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- green onions, minced
- 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined, I left the tails on
Combine the honey, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, bourbon and red pepper flakes. Mix well and pour 1/2 of the marinade over the shrimp, marinate for 20 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce. In a large skillet, melt butter. Drain shrimp and add to the melted butter. Pour over the remaining 1/2 of marinade. Cook over medium high heat stirring frequently until the shrimp have turned pink. Remove shrimp from the skillet, turn heat to high and reduce the sauce until thick. Pour over cooked shrimp, serve.
