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…and you are going to love it!
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/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.
Take about the Brussels sprouts, cut off ends and 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…shrimp will start to turn pink as the marinade begins to caramelize…continue to stir. It should only take about 3 to 4 minutes for the shrimp to cook. Do not overcook your shrimp. Remove from heat and serve as is, or pair with jasmine rice. ENJOY!
