Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and place them in a small bowl. Toss them in 1 Tbsp olive oil and a bit of salt + pepper. Set aside.
Make honey mustard sauce by whisking together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. Note that the cayenne pepper adds some spice to this recipe - feel free to increase or decrease amount as desired!
On the stove, heat a pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot (a splash of water should sizzle on it), place the shrimp on the pan. They should be in a single layer with a bit of space between each piece.
Cook the shrimp for 1-2 minutes per side, then remove and set aside in a bowl. They’ll be opaque, pink, and slightly browned when done.
Next, add the minced garlic to the pan and cook for 1 min. Add the cooked shrimp back into the pan and toss with the honey mustard sauce. Remove from heat and serve! Garnish with black pepper and a sprinkle of parsley (optional).
