Place the shrimp in a bowl. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Add the hot honey, orange blossom honey, garlic, paprika, and olive oil. Allow the shrimp to marinate in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Feel free to add more or less of the above ingredients. I am not one to measure much. I think if it needs more honey, paprika, etc., I just throw it in.

Cut the ends off of the Brussels sprouts and discard. Slice (I make about three slices per sprout and break apart). Heat a cast iron skillet with a touch of olive oil to medium-high. Place Brussels sprouts in pan and start to brown. Do NOT BURN!
