  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.

I made this recipe exactly as instructed. My family of four decided that the lime flavors are too strong and even bitter. Next time I make this, I will cut way back on the lime zest, and add m...

I liked this allot. I reduced the marinade on the stove top and used it as a sauce.

This wasnt horrable, but it needs some tweaking. I might try adding the honey and what not as suggested by one of the other reveiwers. I let the shrimp marinade about 1 1/2 hrs longer than direc...

Fab recipe! I went with the advice of another reviewer and lessened the garlic. Now that I've eaten it, I'm not convinced that was necessary. Definitely should let the shrimp sit longer in the m...

Way t much lime and I cut the limes down by half only ate one portion.

This was very good. The citrus made it so refreshing tasting. I will make again. Next time I will try it on the grill. Thanks.

I substituted lemon for lime, but less than required for lime. Also, I wanted to use the sauce, so I added it to the frying pan to cook the garlic.
