Honey Garlic Shrimp and Rice
Tonight I was craving shrimp. I set out to Pinterest for a new recipe. I found a delicious recipe on this blog called Sally’s Baking Addiction. I’ve visited her website often so I knew it was going to be a good recipe. I followed the directions for the most part, but I did make a few changes due to some of the comments ob her blog . Even though I’m not suppose to eat soy I couldn’t resist trying this recipe. I love the combination of soy and honey. I have used both these ingredients together in other recipes, so I knew my family would like it.
When it comes to cooking shrimp I always use raw. Precooked shrimp cooks too fast and the flavor is not absorb as well as the raw. I marinated the shrimp for about 45 minutes. If I would have had more time I probably would’ve marinated longer. However it still was full of flavor with only 45 minutes.
I prepared some rice and broccoli to go with the shrimp. The entire meal was divine! My oldest loved it. My son was reluctant to try it, but when he finally did he liked it. He kept telling me the shrimp was nice and juicy. My youngest only ate the shrimp, but that is better than nothing like some nights.
I will defiantly be making this again in the near future.
If you think this looks as delicious as I did try it out and see what I’m talking about!
