Simple Asian Glazed Shrimp

Shrimp and cocktail sauce is like PB and J: they’re a dynamic duo! This sticky glazed shrimp, however, could change shrimp’s partner in crime forever. Sweetness from honey and saltiness from soy are enhanced with fresh lemon juice. When combined with melted butter, the sauce becomes a rich, luxurious glaze for the shrimp to bathe in. Oh my!

Top with sesame seeds and scallion for a quick app that tastes like you’ve spent hours slaving away to create. Add some whole wheat spaghetti to the mix for a complete meal!
