My passion is creating recipes utilizing super fresh ingredients. Who would ever think that shrimp and Brussels sprouts can be combined to make one incredible dish? Here it is. Spicy Honey Shrimp with Brussels Sprouts You are going to love it! I also did a take on this using chicken. Check out my recipe for Spicy Honey Walnut Chicken.
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!
It takes about 8 minutes for the Brussels sprouts to brown. Be sure to keep an eye on them. Continue turning the sprouts as they are browning. Add the shrimp with the marinade. Turn down the heat just slightly.
The shrimp will start to turn pink and the marinade will begin to caramelize. Continue to stir. It should only take about 3 to 4 minutes for the shrimp to cook. Do not overcook the shrimp. Remove from heat and serve as is, or pair The Spicy Honey Shrimp with Brussels Sprouts with jasmine rice. ENJOY!!!
