Honey Lime Shrimp

If you’re anything like the folks at the Honey House, you love your seafood and you eat your fair share during the summer. Shrimp are a perennial favorite because they’re really quick to cook up, and can be prepared in lots of ways without much hassle. This Honey Lime Shrimp recipe is also good for you! Shrimp are loaded with protein and are low in calories, and the snow peas and cherry tomatoes are packed with vitamins and minerals.

If you aren’t a fan of snow peas, you need to try them fresh from a local source: they’re sweet and crisp, unlike starchy store bought peas. Always buy fresh and local! You’ll be amazed at the difference in the produce when compared to what is sold in the grocery store. If you go through a lot of produce, consider growing some at home to help reduce your grocery bill. Visit The Old Farmer’s Almanac to learn what and when you should plant in your garden.

Our Eastern Shore Honey makes a fantastic glaze for seafood. The sweetness mellows out while cooking, and the sugars in the honey will give a great glaze to the shrimp. If you decide to make the shrimp on the grill, the smokiness of the cooking process will really add dimension to your meal.
