I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Buttery Lemon Lime Shrimp

Simple but so satisfying. Big, tender shrimp in a delicate and buttery sauce. Ready literally in minutes!

2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps honey
1-2 tsps sriracha sauce
2 tsps soya sauce
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp lemon juice
12 oz (300 g) jumbo shrimp
1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning (or salt and pepper)
2 tbsps vegetable oil
1/4 tsp lemon zest

Whisk the butter, honey, sriracha and soya sauce together in a small saucepan on medium heat until the butter has melted. I like 1 tsp sriracha but if you like more heat go for 2 tsps! Remove sauce from heat and add the lemon and lime juices. Cover and set aside.
Towel dry the shrimp then, in a skillet, heat vegetable oil to medium high heat. Toss the shrimp with Old Bay seasoning and sauté about 1 minute per side or until pink. Don't overcook or the shrimp will be tough. Pour in the sauce and stir. 

Add the lemon zest and your shrimp are ready to serve!

Serves 2
