Healthy and Quick Honey Garlic Shrimp

            This has become a routine in our home. There is so many ways that it can be served, it would seem like a different meal each time. This Healthy dish can be made in a very short amount of time.

This dish actually seems so simple you can’t help but wonder how it can be tasty, filling and healthy.

All that juicy and delicious shrimp will be coated in a savory Honey and Garlic glaze.

You can then spoon it on top of some great healthy brown rice, you could use white rice and if you want to avoid too healthy, I tend to boil up some Angel Hair Pasta and mix it in with the shrimp.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Which way is the healthiest, Angel Hair pasta or Brown Rice?

Brown rice will always be a healthier option than pasta is. I mentioned Angel Hair Pasta since it is thinner than fettuccine or regular Spaghetti.

            How do I store any leftovers?

If you have any leftovers, place them into an airtight container and place it into the refrigerator. It will last for up to 4 days.

            How can I reheat this dish?

Simply place the desired amount into a bowl and microwave until it reaches the temperature you desire.
