How to Make Scotch Bonnet Orange Glazed Shrimp
Start by seasoning your shrimp and setting it aside, next do the same for your sauce ingredients. Once both are prepped, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, place shrimp in skillet and sauté until shrimp pink on one side, then flip. Do not overcrowd your pan. When done, remove and set aside.
Lastly, add prepared sauce to the skillet, stir until garlic softened and sauce begins to thicken, around 3-4 minutes. Return shrimp to skillet, and toss in sauce. Remove skillet from heat once shrimp cooked through and enjoy!
Scotch Bonnet Orange Glazed Shrimp Tips
- Do not overcook your shrimp. Saute in skillet until pink, then remove. Heat your sauce until it begins to thicken, then add back your shrimp and cook for another minute or so or until cooked through.
- If you don’t have Scotch Bonnet Pepper Honey, substitute with regular honey and 1/2-1 tsp of Sriracha Seasoning or Cayenne Pepper, alternatively use 1/4-1/2 piece of fresh scotch bonnet pepper.
- Fresh orange juice is highly recommended, I have not made this recipe with store-bought orange juice.
