Cider and Honey Glazed Shrimp

Do you ever have those days when you’re sooo hungry, but you haven’t planned dinner?

So these Cider and Honey Shrimp came from one of those “What to eat? What to eat?” kind of moments. There are just a few ingredients needed, but somehow these few ingredients turn into something awesome.

I made a simple tomato and parsley salad to go with these for a light dinner, but you can really serve the shrimp in a ton of ways. Maybe on a bed of quinoa, greens, or healthy noodles? Or you can serve it as an appetizer. Lots of possibilities.

If your shrimp have curled into an O shape… then they’re definitely overcooked.

Cook these in batches of 3 or 4. It’s much easier to flip them, adhere to the proper cook time, and prevent over-cooking.

I find that turning the heat off once shrimp have been flipped to the second side really helps to prevent overcooking.

Recipe Type: Main, Appetizer
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 5 tbsp raw honey
  • 5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ tsp ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Whisk together all ingredients (except the shrimp) in a small bowl. Rinse shrimp in cold water and pat dry using paper towels.
  2. Pour half of the sauce over the shrimp and toss to combine; reserve the other half of the sauce. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; using tongs, add shrimp to the skillet; cook until pink and no longer translucent, about 1 minute on each side. Transfer to a serving dish. {*See note in "Just a Few Things"}
  3. Using the same skillet (over medium heat) Add the remaining sauce, heat until it thickens slightly into a glaze. Don't heat for too long or it will harden. This should go fairly quickly, about 1 minute.
  4. Brush glaze on the shrimp and serve!
