Garlic Shrimp With Smoked Paprika & Honey

Garlic Shrimp With Smoked Paprika & Honey
This sautéed garlic shrimp with smoked paprika and honey is the BEST way to cook shrimp! A quick, easy, and healthy protein recipe that’s only 5 ingredients.
  • Approx. 36 large shrimp, thawed, peeled + deveined (or prawns)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1.5 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  1. Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and place them in a small bowl. Toss them in 1 Tbsp olive oil and a bit of salt + pepper.
  2. Heat up a frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot (a splash of water should sizzle on it), place the shrimp on the pan. They should be in a single layer with a bit of space between each piece – you may need to do this in stages, depending on size of pan.
  3. Cook the shrimp for 1-2 minutes per side, then remove and set aside in a bowl. They’ll be opaque, pink, and slightly browned when done.
  4. In the same pan, add remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil and sliced garlic. Sauté garlic for 1 minute, until browned and slightly fragrant. Stir in smoked paprika and honey, then add cooked shrimp back into the pan. Toss to coat.
  5. Remove pan from heat and serve shrimp immediately. Season with salt + pepper, as desired.
