Lemon Honey Glazed Shrimp with Walnuts
I am a big fan of quick Asian stir fry recipes. I am also mindful of choosing healthier ingredients in my sauces and glazes these days. This Lemon Honey Glazed Shrimp is a recipe fits in well with that goal. The core of the dish is wild caught shrimp and healthy fat laden walnuts. The lemon honey glaze is simple. It is raw honey, reduced sodium soy sauce and fresh lemon juice. Served over whole grains with vegetables, this quick walnut shrimp recipe makes a great light healthy meal, that can be ready in a flash. I actually made it today on a short break between working on renovations and waiting for my daughter's school bus.
