Garlicky Honey Soy Shrimp (the ultimate weeknight dish)

If you have just a few minutes to make a super healthy dinner, you have to try this recipe out.  It's loaded with delicious flavor and if you make extra, you'll have leftovers for lunch tomorrow which is key.  I bought a pound of wild frozen peeled and deveined shrimp from Trader Joe's so the bulk of the work was already done for me.  Serve this over brown rice or just some easy roasted veggies.  It is seriously so tasty.  I can't wait for you to try it.

1/4 cup soy sauce reduced sodium
1 tablespoon honey
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 lb raw peeled deveined shrimp, washed and pat dry
1 scallion finely chopped
Combine first 4 ingredients well until honey dissolved for sauce. 

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet on high heat. Add shrimp and cook on one side for 1 minute, flip, add sauce and cook another 1-2 minutes.  Sauce will reduce and thicken.  Serve with the delicious sauce drizzled on top and garnish with chopped scallions.
