I made my first marinade yesterday and it was glorious. Lemme tell you about marinades. I was always so scared of them (I was scared of a lot of things, apparently…). But I was really craving shrimp this week so I wanted to make a really good shrimp dish. This may or may not have been inspired by the shrimp recipe in Chrissy Teigan’s cookbook (MY FAVE), but that one required too many ingredients I did not have, so I went with this recipe. So. Simple.
Oh, I just remembered that I sliced my finger while mincing garlic for this. Whoops. (Nobody freak out it wasn’t that deep..) But be careful with sharp knives, friends.
The marinade is just three ingredients: Honey, Soy Sauce, and Garlic. Make it in the morning & pop it in the fridge for the day.
After work, I just popped the shrimp into a cast-iron skillet. One minute each side, and add the extra marinade to the pan when you flip them.
AND THAT’S IT. Seriously so easy. I served it with some brown rice and topped it with a bit of extra soy sauce, but these shrimp would also go great in a stir fry or with steamed vegetables.
What did you have for dinner last night? Lemme know :)
