Crunchy Honey BBQ Shrimp
I'm the first to admit that I'm not above shortcuts in the kitchen. I love to cook but I hate dirtying 5,000 dishes so I often use shortcuts that allow me to take the semi-homemade approach to cooking. To some that makes me a bad food blogger, but to this working mom it makes me a genius.
Landon is a huge fan of shrimp. He will eat them just about anyway he's presented with them, but he definitely loves them breaded. One day at Costco I bought a two pound box of Seapak frozen breaded shrimp and it has been residing in my freezer ever since. I've been desperate to clear out some stuff in my freezer so I decided to whip up a "glaze"of a sauce for the shrimp and all I can say is YUM. This was a total winner in our house! Considering I still have a ton of these shrimp in the freezer I am sure I'll be making them again. Soon.
