  • 1 lb extra large shrimp wild caught with tails on
  • 3 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
  • 5 tbsp wild honey
  • 1/2 lime for juicing
  • 1 lime sliced, for garnish
  • 1 red chile pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/4 c fish cilantro leaves
  • 1 mango diced
  1. In a small measuring cup whisk together the soy sauce, olive oil, honey, garlic and half of the red chile pepper.
  2. Peal and clean the shrimp If needed making sure to keep the tails on. Dry any access moisture and add them to a mixing bowl. Pour half of the honey garlic marinade over the shrimp and using a spoon make sure to toss and coat them all over in the marinade.
  3. Allow the shrimp to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes to rest and marinade.
  4. Heat up a pre-seasoned cast iron skillet on medium high flame.
  5. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and add them to the hot skillet, preferably without touching each other. Cook them for about 30 to 45 seconds the gently flip on the other side. Allow them to cook for about 20 seconds and pour in the reserved honey garlic marinade. Cook the shrimp for an additional 20 seconds or so until they curl up and the marinade has thickened up.
  6. Remove the skillet from the flame and toss the shrimp to coat all over in the honey marinade.
  7. Squeeze the half lime over the top and sprinkle with the remaining red chile slices.
  8. Sprinkle in the diced mango or mango salsa and garnish with the fresh cilantro and lime.
