  • 1.5 pounds large or jumbo shrimp peeled, de-veined, and tails removed if desired
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  • Whisk together butter, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, and garlic.
  • Add shrimp to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic sauce.
  • Bring sauce to a boil, stirring shrimp occasionally, until shrimp is fully cooked and sauce has thickened, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Stir in cilantro and serve immediately.


If you want to make a lighter version, you can cut the sauce ingredients in half. I like to make the recipe as written and serve the shrimp and extra sauce over rice!
