How To Make Browned Butter Honey Garlic Shrimp

This honey garlic shrimp recipe exhibits a buttery sweetness from the browned butter and a strong, smoky flavor from the garlic, and tanginess from honey.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes




    1. Heat butter in a nonstick pan or skillet over medium-high heat.
    1. Melt, swirling pan and stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes, or until the foam settles; the butter begins to change in colour to a golden brown and has a nutty fragrance.
    1. Add the honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, and garlic; stir well to combine all of the flavours together and cook for 30 seconds until the garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat.
    1. Pour out just over half of the browned butter from the pan (liquid only), leaving 2 tablespoons of the honey butter mixture in the pan, and reserve the rest for later.
    1. Add half of the shrimp to the honey/butter in the pan; sear for about 2 minutes each side, or until just cooked through and no longer opaque. Transfer to a plate; set aside.
    1. Wipe the pan over with a paper towel and add 2 more tablespoons of the honey/butter mixture to the pan.
    1. Sear the remaining shrimp for 2 minutes each side, or until just cooked through and no longer opaque.
    1. Add the cooked shrimp back into the pan, and pour in the remaining honey/butter sauce; stirring through the shrimp to evenly coat. Season with salt and pepper if desired and garnish with parsley.
    1. Serve with steamed vegetables; over rice or with a salad
