Honey and Lime Marinated Shrimp

Honey and Lime Marinated Shrimp

3 pounds of cooked shrimp, peeled and tails removed
juice from two limes
2 tablespoon fresh ginger chopped fine
2 tablespoons honey warmed slightly
2 tablespoons scallions, or red or white onions, chopped fine
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped medium

Place cooked shrimp in a steep sided bowl or a large Ziploc baggie. Whisk all ingredients together and pour over shrimp and marinate at least half a day, but overnight is better. Stir the marinade once an hour for the first four hours. In the closeup it looks like I added some dried dill, couldn't hurt.

Just before serving place shrimp on top of bed of mixed greens one at a time. Drizzle the leftover marinade over the top. These are so good and can be made a day or two in advance. We're headed to our neighbor's for a late lunch today and I am bringing these shrimp along with some deviled eggs. If you don't like cilantro you can substitute some flat leaf parsley. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  1. Decidedly flat leaf parsley - or dill, or even fennel. Lime is a magical marinade base isn't it?

  2. Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, this time I think the combo of the honey and lime was what really made this marinade, sweet and sour and yummy.

  11. Hi Everyone, thanks, these were really a hit with all at the party, try it you'll like it, glad you are enjoying the recipes and now when I forget what to make I can look back at the ones I have made in the past. Ha.

    Oh and the deviled eggs I mixed in some stoneground mustard and a little dab of lime juice to make the yolks mix up easier. I also sprinkled them with some chilpotle pepper for color as I was out of paprika.
