  • 1 Lb Peeled and deveined raw shrimp, tails on if preferred (24 ct)
  • 3/4 Tsp Lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Lemon juice (fresh is best)
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tsp Fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/4 Tsp Smoked paprika or cayenne pepper if you prefer spicy
  • 1/4 Tsp Black pepper


  1. If using frozen shrimp, make sure they're thawed first, then pat dry. Set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, top with an oven-safe cooling rack that's been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, parsley, paprika, and pepper, whisking to combine well. Add shrimp to the bowl and toss gently to coat. Preheat broiler to HIGH and position rack so the food will be approximately 5 inches from the heat.

  3. Place shrimp on prepared pan and broil 5-6 minutes, turning shrimp over once about 2-3 minutes in, until shrimp is cooked through.
