Honey garlic shrimp

We know that shrimp can be a polarizing food. You either love it, or you hate it. Well, if you’re in the “love it” camp, we have a gift for you.

Shrimp is great because it’s low in calories, protein-rich and you can customize it to a flavor that suits you. If that’s not enough to convince you, you’ll just have to try this recipe for yourself.
