Citrus Shrimp

Recipe adapted from:

  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1.In a blender or food processor, combine the orange juice and zest, lime juice and zest, olive oil, garlic and salt. Be careful with the salt - the shrimp really suck it up! Cover, and puree until smooth.
2.Place shrimp in a bowl, and pour the citrus marinade over them. Let them marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature.
3.Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the shrimp about 3 minutes per side, in batches if necessary, until opaque. Spoon a little of the marinade in with them for extra flavor while they cook if you like. Serve with rice or asian noodles.

Notes & Tips:
After reading the reviews on this recipe I added the half cup of honey and cut back on one lime. Also, if you wanted to you could pour the rest of the marinade in the pan to deglaze it and create a sauce.
