Glazed Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken, meet your seafood counterpart, Glazed Honey Garlic Shrimp.

While you’re firing up the flames on the grill (or grill pan), check out this flavor lineup: honey, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin, and my secret ingredient for adding a touch of tang, balsamic vinegar. This sweet and sour blend does doubly duty in this recipe as both a marinade and a glaze, and the result is an enticing stack of sticky shrimp skewers easy enough for a quick weeknight meal and impressive enough for a weekend party.

Glazed Honey Garlic Shrimp Recipe
Prep Time 1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time 8 mins
Total Time 1 hr 38 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients 

  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Equipment:

  • Wooden skewers

Instructions 

  • Place the shrimp in a large sealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, honey, balsamic vinegar, hoisin, garlic and pepper. Pour half of the mixture into the bag with the shrimp and set the remaining half aside. Seal the bag then shake it lightly so that the shrimp are thoroughly coated. Refrigerate the shrimp for 1 hour.
  • While the shrimp marinate, soak the wooden skewers in water.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Slide several shrimp onto each of the wooden skewers then place the skewers on the grill and cook the shrimp until pink throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side. While the shrimp cook, transfer the remaining half of the honey-garlic mixture to a small saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer and cook it just until it has thickened into a glaze, about 5 minutes. Set the glaze aside.
  • Remove the shrimp skewers from the grill or grill pan and brush them with the prepared glaze. Serve immediately.

    Made this for Father’s Day last week for the in-law and let’s just say, I’ve made it 3 more times since then. Also works great with grilled chicken!!! Thank you!

  2. 5 stars
    This is an amazing recipe with exceptional flavor. Cook time is perfect and they are delicious. Best of all, it is an easy recipe to prepare. Tonight we cooked them in the oven st 425 and they were amazing!

  3. Hi, would it make a big difference in taste if I didn’t use Hoisin Sauce?
    I don’t any on hand.

  4. I made these shrimp for dinner tonight; so easy, all the ingredients in the house already, and full of delicious flavor. I’ll definitely be making them again soon.

  5. Hi!
    Which grill pan do you use? I’m looking to buy one, as I’ve never used one before, and would love for this to be my first meal on it!! :)

  6. That’s 540 g of shrimp??? Only in the US can you buy anything in pounds. Really wish you would include metric amounts in your recipes. Have really enjoyed a lot of them, especially the Asian meatballs, but get frustrated sometimes trying to convert your ingredients.

    1. Hi Rachel! I am not a certified nutritionist so I do not provide calorie counts for any of my recipes as I wouldn’t be able to guarantee their accuracy.

  7. Such a perfect grilling recipe, Kelly! Cannot wait to give them a try. Hope you enjoyed your weekend! :)
