great but i don't know why the sauce didn't thicken

Was good. Simple to make. I would try raw instead of cooked shrimp. Thought I could skimp around it but I over cooked the shrimp. I think next time if I make it I'll add a few veggies into it.

Wonderful. The flavor needed a tiny kick so I added about 1 teaspoon of Franks hot sauce & it was fantastic. Next tome I'll add a little corn starch to the sauce to help thicken it enough to adhere to the shrimp better. Bu the way, this sauce is also great on veggies like green beans.

This was delicious and easy to make. I used about 1/2 the Honey (i ran out) and I used coconut aminos (it’s what’s I had instead of soy sauce) and it turned out great! I will def make this recipe again.
Made this for my boyfriend who loves seafood, and he said it was the best shrimp he has ever had (I agree, though I haven’t had many types of shrimp before). A couple of notes though, we made it without the green onion garnish because I don’t like onions, and we used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. Also, our sauce came out not quite as thick as we expected, so you may want to consider adding a little bit of corn starch. It still coated the shrimp well though, we just wanted it a little thicker. As a suggestion, I’d serve this on top of rice in the future to make a complete dish. (The sauce will definitely give the rice an awesome flavor.)
This is possibly the best shrimp dish ever.

Came out great. Good flavor. Definitely will make again
Great flavor! I ended up over cooking the shrimp. When I use this recipe again, I will cook the shrimp first, take them off and put them to the side and then cook the sauce to get it as thick as I like. Finally, coat the shrimp in the sauce.
My shrimp weren’t as flavorful as I expected them to be but it was still super tasty. I served it with rice and asparagus.
Awesome Recipe!!! So Tasty.
Great and delicious!
I would make it again with salmon. Broccoli, zucchini, and yellow squash
It was great! Skipped out on the marinating but it was still delicious! I would recommend this meal to my friends!
amazing, threw slices of lemon in the marinade
Alhamdulillah. Big hit! Thanks for the recipe ☺️

it was actually really good. my wife enjoyed it more than I did because we were using butter and soy substitutes, (I'd prefer the real thing) but aside from having to watch the sauce turn too sticky at the end there, it's easy and I'd definitely use it again

This was sooooooooo good. I couldn’t stop eating. It was so flipping good❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Though I overcooked the shrimp it was an excellent dish. It was very good alone, my wife enjoyed her's overtop of roasted vegetables. i think the marinade could be used for other things too and intend to try it on some chicken soon.
Great with shrimp and/or chicken. quick and easy. added red pepper flakes for some heat

😋😋😋😋 Just added cornstarch to thicken and took shrimp out before adding sauce so as not to over cook them! Other than that it’s great!

Great!... But you need to cook the shrimp, and reduce the marinade separately, otherwise you will overcook the shrimp and it will be like chewing rubber.
Perfect! I had to add a touch of cornstarch to get it to thicken, as the shrimp was getting too done, but the flavor was amazing! Super easy to make. Served over brown rice, and the family ate evey bite.
Tasted very good. Shrimp ended up over cooked and needs to be taken out before reducing the marinade.

Tastes better than it looks

I wouldn’t make it again !

It was okay. The recipe was very easy, but just lacked something. I ended up having to remove the shrimp.from the pan to reduce the sauce becuase it was super runny. I don't think I would make this again.
