Asian Honey Lemon Shrimp – this is the easiest, most delicious sweet and tangy shrimp and you can make it on the grill or stovetop! and the Honey Lemon Chili Butter Sauce is out of this world!
Grill or Stove top sweet and tangy Asian Honey Lemon Shrimp is crazy easy and crazy delicious and the marinade doubles as an out of this world chili butter sauce!
Shrimp never ceases to amaze me at just how easy it is to make, let alone quick to cook! If only it were as inexpensive as chicken, and if only my husband wasn’t allergic to it, I would eat shrimp every day. But for all those NOT allergic to shrimp and ready for either a crowd pleasing meal or super easy family pleasing meal, I bring you Asian Honey Lemon Shrimp!
I adapted this plate licking sauce from my Honey Lemon Ginger Chicken and added Asian Chili Paste to balance out the spices not used from the chicken breading. So we have sweet honey, tangy lemon, grounded soy, spicy Asian chili paste all seasoned with a kick of ginger and garlic AKA we have otherwordly deliciousness.
This sauce not only serves as the marinade, but doubles as the incredible Honey Lemon Chili BUTTER Sauce! Because I figure, if we are going to make shrimp, we might as well splurge and make it the best shrimp ever. And nothing says best shrimp ever than Honey Lemon Butter Sauce.
You make the sauce simply by melting butter with your reserved Honey Lemon marinade and just 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch. Simmer away to let it thicken slightly. If you want spicier shrimp, simply add more Asian chili paste to the butter sauce or to your own portion of butter sauce – and then everyone is happy. And everyone is blissfully happy with one bite of these buttery, juicy, tender, sweet and tangy morsels.
I like blissfully happy.
