Honey Garlic Shrimp

The recipe calls for:
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tbs garlic, minced
1 lb shrimp, uncooked, peeled & deveined
2 tsp olive oil
red pepper flakes
-- Combine the honey, soy sauce and garlic in a large baggie. Add the shrimp and mix it up so it is covered with the marinade. Let sit for however long you want/can. For me, I whipped this up quickly without much prep so it didn't marinate long, but you can marinate it during the day before dinner so more flavor is absorbed.
-- Heat olive oil in a pan on medium. Once heated, add the shrimp. Heat the shrimp until they are fully cooked through, make sure to mix it a little or flip the shrimp. Sprinkle some red pepper flakes on the shrimp while it's cooking.
I didn't get to go grocery shopping this weekend because I was away but next time I would add some sort of veggies. I think broccoli or edamame would go great with this. This time I just cooked a little quinoa and poured the shrimp over it.  7 pieces of shrimp was only 80 calories so I had 14 pieces.
This recipe takes only 10 minutes for prep and cooking. Can't beat that!
