Light Honey Garlic Shrimp with a Kick


Making your own marinades has many benefits. For one, they are cheaper, and they are also a lot healthier. This way, you don’t have all that added salt or sugar; you’re able to monitor and tweak it to fit your health requirements or specific taste buds.

I’ve been on a pretty big shrimp kick lately, it makes me miss the summers grilling out by the pool or spending my weekends at the beach. Is anyone else starting to go a little winter stir crazy? It’s not even that cold down here in Jacksonville, but it’s definitely too chilly to spend my days on the water.

So, if you’re feeling the same, just make some seafood and temporarily trick your mind into a summer mindset. 😉

You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound devained shrimp thawed (either raw or cooked)
  • 1/3 cup oil (either grape seed or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons pure honey


Mix all the ingredients together to evenly coat the shrimp in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 1-3 hours (the longer the better!)

When the shrimp is ready to cook, simply pour all the contents of the bowl into a hot pan. No need to oil the pan beforehand- the marinade will work.
