Shrimp and Scallops in A Lemon, Garlic and Honey Sauce

Shrimp and Scallops in Honey, Garlic and Lemon Marinade

This is a very simple and fast dinner to make.  Serve with rice and a vegetable on the side such as green beans.  This was good but a tad too sweet for my liking. You may want to reduce the amount of honey to ¼ of a cup if you are like me.  The rest of those who ate this really enjoyed it. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound raw shrimp wild caught (not farm raised)
  • 1/2 pound scallops wild caught
  • ½ c. honey
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ c. coconut aminos
    1 ½ T. pure lemon juice
    2 T. grass fed butter (for the pan)
    Green onion for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Whisk all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. Set half the amount aside and to the rest, add the scallops and shrimp and toss to coat with the marinade. Set it fridge for at least 30 minutes
  2. Butter the pan and add the shrimp and the scallops. Discard the marinade that the seafood was in. Season with s/p.
  3. Cook for roughly 2 minutes per side. Add in the reserved marinade and cook another minute.
  4. Remove the shrimp and scallops with a slotted spoon and transfer to a dish. Let the marinade cook longer so that it thickens.
    Once it has thickened, spoon the marinade over the scallops and shrimp and top with the green onion and serve. (goes well over wild rice or white basmati rice or cauliflower rice )
  5. Note: if you double the amount of seafood, do not double the marinade amount-it comes out too sweet. I think next time I would cut back on the honey-and use only 1/4 cup.

  1. The original recipe calls for 1/2 c. honey. I used this amount but felt it was too sweet. Next time I will use only 1/4th a cup.
