Everyone knows that fried chicken with hot honey is the bomb but we propose that grilled shrimp with hot honey is even better. It is faster and less messy too which makes it a great weeknight meal. Any of the Runamok Hot Honey options are excellent. The Morita enhances the smokiness of the grill. The piney flavor of the Szechuan Pepper is a nice contrast to the sweetness of the shrimp. And the De Arbol is perfect for anyone who likes their seafood with some kick.
For the shrimp
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb raw shrimp, shelled
For the honey drizzle
- 1 Combine one tablespoon of hot honey, garlic, salt, and olive oil in a bowl. Gently toss the shrimp to coat and let sit in a refrigerator for an hour.
- 2 Stir together the remaining two tablespoons of hot honey with the lemon juice and set aside.
- 3 Preheat the grill or broiler.
- 4 Set the shrimp near the flame and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until slightly charred. Remove from heat and drizzle with honey-lemon sauce.
