Cuban-inspired shrimp marinated in a mixture of orange juice, lime juice, and both zests to compensate for the hard-to-find bitter oranges. I serve it with white rice, crusty bread, a green salad, and the mojo sauce on the side for dipping.

followed as written; citrus "cooks" shrimp, so not surprised that shrimp was a bit dry and chewy. I served with broccoli, and the sauce on broccoli was delicious. Sauce/marinade is really tasty and could be great in other dishes as well. For fish, cut the marinating time, in my opinion. Read More
