1. To make the garlic-lime shrimp, combine garlic, honey, lime juice, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.
2. Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, adding the olive oil and butter. Sear shrimp on both sides for about 4 minutes total, then add the garlic honey lime sauce.
3. Cook the shrimp, flipping sides from time to time until the garlic honey lime sauce starts to caramelize.
3. Garnish the garlic-lime shrimp with chopped cilantro and serve immediately with steamed vegetables, over cauliflower rice, or in a salad. Enjoy!
