Ingredients

1 tablespoon honey

1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne

1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

1 garlic clove, grated on a Microplane or finely minced

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 pound cleaned extra-large shrimp, patted very dry with paper towels

1 tablespoon very cold butter, cubed

Lime wedges, for serving

1 jalapeño, halved, seeded and very thinly sliced, for serving

1 tablespoon chives or scallion greens, finely chopped, for serving

Mayonnaise, for serving (optional)

Directions

Heat oven to 500 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine honey, cayenne, lime zest, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss in shrimp to coat.

Spread shrimp on a large rimmed baking sheet and dot with butter. Roast until shrimp is pink and opaque, but before the edges have started to curl, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle generously with fresh lime juice and toss with jalapeños and chives or scallions. Serve with mayonnaise if you like.
