Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Place shrimp in a bowl, and pour the citrus marinade over them. Let them marinate for 20 minutes at room temperature.

  • 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.

This was a very good recipe but needed some tweaking. I used 2 limes instead of 3. I added a half-cup of orange juice a half-cup of honey and a small can of crushed pineapple to the marinade. I marinated for 2 hours. After pan-frying the shrimp I poured the excess marinade in the pan and reduced by half to make a sauce. I Toasted some coconut and added that to some white rice I made and poured the sauce over the rice and sprinkled the shrimp with some leftover toasted coconut. Delicious! Read More

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 more orange juice. Hubby said he would have liked more sauce that he could put over the rice I served alongside. Maybe I'll add some crushed pineapple honey and a sprinkle of toasted coconut before serving to create a sweeter version. This recipe definetly needs some experimenting before you serve it to guests. Nice light recipe however; and easy to throw together. Read More

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 directed. Maybe that had something to do with the over pouring citrus flavor. When they called it citrus shrimp they werent joking! Read More

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 marinade than 20 minutes. I let it go for about an hour and it easily could have gone longer. Read More

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. Read More
