My guys like their food spicy, so I’m always kicking things up a notch for them, and these spicy honey garlic shrimp are where it’s at! Sweet and spicy flavors combine with the addition of Mike’s Hot Honey, and a bit of minced garlic adds even more flavor to these delicious shrimp recipe.

Mike’s Hot Honey is infused with chilies, and is the perfect addition to give this recipe the bold taste that makes it a family favorite.

I’ve shared this tasty shrimp recipe with you below so that you can just click and print. But first, here is a short Q&A that might be helpful when preparing shrimp recipes like this one.

How do you cook shrimp properly?

If your shrimp is frozen, you will want to thaw it before cooking. Heat a little bit of olive oil in a skillet, and add shrimp to the hot skillet. Cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes per side, until shrimp is pink, which means is cooked all the way through.

How do you cook shrimp so it’s tender?

The key to cooking shrimp perfectly is using high heat to sear it to tender, juicy perfection.
