This is a nice entree for any lunch. Is very tasty, different, and easy to cook. The base of the recipe is shrimp, tomato sauce, orange juice, and red onions. Great with a cold beer on sunny days. Serve chilled, with some popcorn or fried green banana slices on the side. If more formal, bread and butter.
