Sweet & Spicy Sriracha Shrimp

I like it hot. If you don’t like things hot, this is probably not the recipe for you.

Feel free to make adjustments, but sriracha is the star of this show.

When the temperature outside is a far cry from my preferred 80 degrees Fahrenheit (I’m a Gidget, remember? Gidget likes the beach), this dish will warm you right up.

Next time I’ll add some veggies, maybe snow peas, and make it a complete meal.

I also forgot I was going to top it off with some green onions I had on hand, but it was delicious without them.

If you’re really not a fan of super spicy, you can use less hot sauce and more lime, otherwise just enjoy the natural sinus cleanse. 🙂

Honey extaction

I also had to include this picture of last summer’s honey harvest and the extraction process since I used homegrown honey in this recipe! 🙂

made this the other day. First bite was amazing, then the heat packed me a punch. Will use less sriracha sauce next time to be able to enjoy this more.

Yes, it's definitely hot! You can add a little butter to mellow it as well.
