Garlic Honey Florida Shrimp

Garlic Honey Florida Shrimp

Florida shrimp can be purchased at any Florida seafood shop. There are several species. We prefer Key West Pinks, but whits shrimp from the Gulf will work perfectly. Also, if you can find some Tupelo honey from Florida, the recipe would be perfect!
