This Jalapeño Honey Lime Shrimp Tacos dish is made with shrimp, olive oil, garlic, jalapeños, limes, butter, and served on a warm tortilla.
This is a super delicious summer dish for anyone who enjoys a sweet and spicy combination. The shrimp absorbs its flavor through marinating with delicious lime juice and zest, jalapeños, and honey. This dish is cooked on the stovetop but I have tried threading them into skewers and grilling and it was absolutely delicious.
How to make Jalapeño Honey Lime Shrimp Tacos
Optional: Before starting, clean the shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon each of fish seasoning, and garlic salt. I used the Chef Merito brand because the quality is amazing for the price, but you can use any brand you like.
In a mixing bowl, add the shrimp, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, tablespoon of minced garlic, 3 tablespoons of honey, 2 minced jalapeño peppers, lime juice, and lime zest and mix. Marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.
To cook on the stovetop: In a large pan, drizzle olive oil and remove the shrimp from the bowl. Leave the marinade inside the bowl. Cook the shrimp 2 minutes on each side. Flip, the pour the marinade and butter into the pan. Cook the shrimp until it turns pink and opaque, an extra 2-3 minutes.
To cook on the grill: Thread the shrimp into skewers as well as any other vegetable you would like to grill. I threaded the shrimp with onion and limes, and then brushed the marinade onto each skewers. Grill on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Serve the shrimp on tacos and garnish with cilantro and spicy mayonnaise.
