Honey Lime Shrimp

image Honey Lime shrimp is one of my favorite shrimp recipes. These shrimps have so much flavor, and are so simple and easy to make! I usually use the peeled and divined shrimp when I make these for myself, so that I don’t have to do extra work before popping them right in my mouth😌😋 But when I make these for guests or for a party I use the ones with tail on to make them more appealing. Also I love spicy shrimp, so I always add red pepper flakes to all of my shrimp, so if your like me then I definitely recommend to sprinkle some over the shrimp!

Serves 2 or 5-6 as a side dish


  • 1 pound shrimp- peeled and divined, tail on- optional
  • juice of 1/2 a large lime
  • 3-4 tbsp. of Honey
  • 1/6 cup olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp. of flour( if you want to grill the shrimp then do NOT use any flour! It will burn the shrimp and make them super dry!)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • zest of lime- optional
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • pepper flakes- optional but highly recommended!!


  1. Thaw, rinse and pat dry shrimp In a large bowl add olive oil, pepper flakes, garlic, lime zest, salt and pepper to your shrimp and mix well
  2. add honey and lime juice. Mix well again.( make sure sauce isn’t runny and coats the shrimp)
  3. Add 2 tbsp. of flour. Mix well. Add more flour if needed to coat better.( flour helps the sauce stay on shrimp when cooking)
  4. Place the shrimp with all the sauce in a Ziploc bag and close tightly letting all the air out. Place in fridge to marinate for ATLEAST 3 hours but no more then 12 hours.
  5. Switch sides occasionally to make sure all if the shrimp are getting marinated well.
  6. Once shrimp have marinated, heat up a large skillet on medium heat. No oil needed! ( shrimp already have olive oil)
  7. cook shrimp with all the sauce  for about 1 min per side, or until shrimp are ready.

  Enjoy this amazing recipe of shrimp!!!😋☺️
