1 ½ pounds large or jumbo shrimp peeled, de-veined, and tails removed if desired
6 tablespoons butter melted
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
4 tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons minced garlic
¼ cup chopped cilantro


Whisk together butter, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, and garlic.
Add shrimp to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic sauce.
Bring sauce to a boil, stirring shrimp occasionally, until shrimp is fully cooked and sauce has thickened, about 6-8 minutes.
Stir in cilantro and serve immediately.

If you want to make a lighter version, you can cut the sauce ingredients in half. I like to make the recipe as written and serve the shrimp and extra sauce over rice!
