- Heaping 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce

- Thaw the shrimp, if using frozen.
- Mince the garlic. Pat the shrimp dry. Stir it together with the minced garlic, onion powder and kosher salt.

- Turn off the heat and remove the shrimp. Add the glaze to the pan and stir until thickened, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Once thickened, stir the shrimp back into the sauce and serve.
