Honey Lime Shrimp

Hey guys, it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! I have a serious thing for seafood. Salmon, lobster, king crab, scallops…. I love it all.  Growing up, we had shrimp at nearly every family gathering. Cold cocktail shrimp for an appetizer, Asian shrimp salad for a side, grilled garlic shrimp for dinner, you name it.

Honey Lime Shrimp

Lucky for me, I married someone who loves shrimp almost as much as I do. Actually, maybe even more so. *gasp* Hard to imagine but he just might take the cake for all-time shrimp lover. I recently fixed this Honey Lime Shrimp for dinner and we both went nuts for it! I love the honey and lime flavors together and did I mention that this recipe takes basically no prep at all?! Seriously, throw everything in a bag, let it marinate for a bit in the fridge, cook it up for about 5 minutes on the stovetop, and you’ve got an incredibly delicious shrimp dinner on the table in no time. Piece of cake right?!

Lemon Garlic Cream Fettuccini


  1. I love this! Simple and tasty. It makes me feel like summer will be here shortly!

  2. Looks delish!! Can I use cooked shrimp?

  3. Your recipe calls for 2 teaspoons garlic. Would that be minced garlic, garlic powder or garlic salt? Thanks:)

  4. Can we use lemon juice instead of lime? Or is it not as good?
