Honey Lime Shrimp

I made this the other night for friends that came over for dinner. We ate it as shrimp tacos, but I imagine it would be delicious on a salad or with some brown rice & veggies. It would be great skewered and grilled in the summer time too!

2 lbs. shrimp, peeled
1/4 c. EVOO
6 T. honey
Juice & Zest of 4 limes
2 t. kosher salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2-1 t. red pepper flakes
6 cloves garlic, minced

1. Mix together all ingredients except shrimp. This will make your marinade.
2. Marinade shrimp for 30-60 min & refrigerate.
3. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before cooking.
4. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for about a minute on each side, until pink.

**Since there's oil in the marinade, you don't need to add any to your skillet**
