this delicious honey orange glazed skillet shrimp uses just 8 ingredients, one pan and takes 15 minutes to pull together making it a staple for busy weekdays!


  • Pat of butter or drizzle of oil
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, peeled & deveined 
  • 1/31/2 cup freshly squeezed juice from a Sunkist® Cara Cara orange (about 1 or 1 1/2 oranges, depending on size)
  • 34 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy or Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • For serving: 1-2 teaspoons Sunkist® Cara Cara orange zest, chopped fresh green onion


  1. Place a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium heat and add a pad of butter or a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Once oil is hot, add shrimp cooking 1-2 minutes per side or until they just begin to turn pink and opaque.
  3. Add orange to the skillet and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes or until just slightly reduced.
  4. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, or until just fragrant (being careful not to burn or you’ll get a bitter flavor).
  5. Bring the heat up to medium-high and add soy sauce, honey, sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Toss to combine, flipping the shrimp to evenly cook & coat.  Cook for another 1-2 minutes (until sauce thickens slightly).
  6. Top with desired garnish and serve!


  • If using frozen shrimp, I recommend cooking in a separate pan from the glaze so that the additional water run-off in the pan as the shrimp cooks doesn’t cause the glaze to be too loose.
