Hoisin Glazed Shrimp

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to cook with.  I couldn’t have said that two years ago.  Not only did I not really like eating it, but I never knew when it was done.  So when I did cook it for my husband, I almost always over cooked it.  A lot has changed.  Now that I like shrimp, I can tell when it is done.  Plus it cooks so quickly, it is great for busy nights.

My friend Tracey shared a version of this recipe a few months ago.  We are big fans of anything with hoisin at my house, so I was immediately drawn to the recipe.  It took me a little awhile to actually get this on our menu, but now these hoisin glazed shrimp will be making a regular appearance.

My 8 year old loves all kind of seafood.  I think salmon is the only thing he has ever not liked.  My husband and I were joking the other night, that I should have just told him the artichokes that were mixed in with dinner was a seafood, because then he wouldn’t think twice about it.  So to say he liked these shrimp, is kind of an understatement.  I am going to have to start doubling shrimp recipes so I actually get to eat too 🙂
