Quick, easy, and delicious – slightly sweet and sizzling hot shrimp in a caramelized honey garlic sauce. You’ll lick your fingers clean of this sticky and spicy sauce at your next party or jazzed up weekend dinner.


  • 1 kg Raw Shrimp, either with the shells and head on or off (your preference)
  • 4 Tbsp Butter or Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Sriracha Honey Hot Chili
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 Lime, cut into wedges

Beef Rub


  1. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat on the stove top. Add the butter/oil to the skillet to melt.
  2. Once the butter/oil is melted and heated, stir in the honey, Sriracha Honey Hot Chili, and garlic cloves. Meanwhile, pat the shrimp dry.
  3. When the oil and spice mixture is bubbly and simmering, add the shrimp to the pan and cook 2 minutes, allowing to get browned and caramelized on one side. Then, using tongs, turn the shrimp and finish cooking another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat. Spoon the pan sauces over the shrimp and sprinkle with cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
  5. Serve the shrimp promptly with lime wedges.

Bonus! Crank up the grill and cook the shrimp over the flames for extra caramelization – simply use the oil and spice mixture as a cold marinade for the shrimp before grilling.
