What Shrimp Should You Use?

Using a large, wild-caught shrimp is best for this recipe! I would skip using smaller salad shrimp, but it will still world either way.

Can you leave out the honey?

Yes, you can make this recipe totally sweetener-free and leave out the honey, however, you’d want to add more seasoning to make up for taking away the flavor of the honey.

What should you serve with this shrimp?

  • Side of cauliflower rice (or regular rice if tolerated)
  • Use it in tacos
