  • 1 pound large shrimp peeled and deveined, tail on for prettier presentation
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup minced parsley
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil


  • In a large bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, dijon mustard, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley.
  • Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the bowl while simultaneously whisking to combine the ingredients.

  • Saute shrimp in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes per side or until no longer opaque.
  • Serve on a platter with toothpicks or small tongs. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges.


This recipe will make approximately 31-35 pieces. You should plan on 3-4 pieces per person as an appetizer. As a meal, plan on 6-8 pieces per person.
