Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the butter and let it melt.
Add garlic, soy sauce, and honey, swirling the pan every now and then until sauce has slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
Add half of the shrimp, cook for about 2 minute, flip them, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until they turn pink and curl into a C-shape. Transfer to a plate. Melt the other half of the butter and cook remaining shrimp until cooked through. Add the other cooked shrimp back to the pan and stir in sauce until combined.
If you'd like to, squeeze the juice of 1 juicy lime on top and sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons chopped green onions and/or 1-2 teaspoons sesame seeds on top.
