    In fact, I started by experimenting with pandan leaves and brown sugar to make Pandan Garlic Butter Shrimp. It was garlicky and slightly sweet with a hint of the fragrance of pandan.

    Then, while we were on vacation in Nueva Ecija, I decided to switch brown sugar with honey because, well, people say it’s healthier than regular sugar. We also didn’t have pandan at home so I just made it more garlicky and added a few spoonful of soy sauce.

    I thought it was quite phenomenal so I’m sharing this Spicy Soy Honey Garlic Shrimp recipe with you.
