This sweet and garlicky skillet recipe is one of Ree Drummond’s all-time favourite 16-minute meals, and it’s easy to see why! The Pioneer Woman often enjoys this simple dish as a quick option when dining solo as it’s packed with flavour and zero-fuss.

Ree starts with a sticky-sweet glaze made of sriracha sauce, honey and crushed garlic and cooks up the shrimp in minutes. She serves it on a bed of wilted garlic spinach with a sprinkle of fresh parsley for a bright finish.
