Tamarind-Honey Shrimp

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Jostlori

COOKING TIME INCLUDES MARINATING TIME! After looking at a lot of similar recipes, I combined all my favorite flavors into one sweet glaze. The recipe was developed for shrimp, but it can be used on boneless chicken or tofu for a vegetarian option.

The sauce on these shrimp is fantastic, cooking down to a sticky-sweet glaze that is wonderful served over jasmine rice.
