A meal with lovely presentation that's nice enough for dinner guests, but really quick and easy to make. Delicious served over white rice with a garnish of toasted slivered or sliced almonds.

i normally don't rate the recipes i make from this site as so many already have before me. this was the recipe of the day and so i tried this when it had no ratings yet. i did not have dried apricots so i used apricot jam instead (so i got the flavor and it was a little more saucy too). otherwise i made it exactly as written - and the flavors came together really nicely. in short, we LOVED it! It was also easy to make. I'm not even a huge shrimp fan but i would make this again in a heartbeat. thank you for this recipe! PS: just ate the leftovers the next day.... still fabulous! Read More

It sounded good and I had to buy some Grand Marnier. It was easy to make but it just lacked something. I would add a little coconut or maybe some sushi ginger. Not sure I will make it again. I'll just drink the Grand Marnier. Read More

We really enjoyed the flavor mix with these unusual ingredients for a shrimp dish. The sauce when thickened is more like a glaze than a sauce. Next time I will double the amount of the sauce so that there is some sauce available for the rice too. I forgot the nut garnish, but it was good anyhow. Definitely adding this to the repertoire, and it is pretty easy to make too. Read More

Fantastic! I did as another reviewer suggested and used apricot preserve instead of the diced apricot. I served with rice and broccoli and next time I will add the broccoli to the dish as we all mixed it together on our plates. Tasty and easy! Read More

I made this recipe for my mom for Mother’s Day and she love it and she is a hard cretic to food. If she make it and she doesn’t like it you won’t see it again! This Apricot Shrimp Recipe is a winner in my book two!! Sorry I have no photo to post of that dinner. But, believe me, it was good and my parents agree. Read More
