  1. This recipe uses defrosted shrimp. You can thaw your shrimp in the refrigerator overnight. To thaw shrimp quickly, place it under cold running water. Pat dry with a paper towel before cooking.
  2. Low-sodium soy sauce is recommended, so it’s not too salty.
  3. Cook your shrimp in a single layer in the pan to get a good sear, using multiple batches if needed.
  4. If your shrimp are already cooked, take them out first, and let the sauce thicken up. Watch the sauce carefully as honey can easily make it burn. Add the shrimp back when the sauce is ready
