Spicey Orange Shrimp

I made this spicey shrimp for Hubby’s birthday dinner as a first course. We both really enjoyed it. It has a nice level of kick followed by the sweetness of the orange. We’ll definitely be making this again. I think I got too impatient with the sauce because it didn’t thicken. But it was still really good. This would also be great served over pasta like shrimp scampi.

Spicey Orange Shrimp – from thePioneerWoman.com
2 dozen 26-30 per pound deveined shrimp
3/4 cup orange juice
2-4 cloves garlic
3 Tbsp salted butter
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

Peel and dry shrimp. Set aside on a paper towel.

Thinly slice garlic cloves (I minced using my garlic press). Add garlic and other spices to the OJ.

In a large skillet over high heat, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Add shrimp and cook 30-60 seconds before beginning to flip. Cook for another 30-60 seconds. Remove shrimp from pan. Leave heat on high.

Once butter and drippings have begun to smoke slightly, add the OJ mixture to the pan and stir. Add the last Tbsp of butter. After a few minutes, the sauce will be thicker.

Return shrimp to pan and toss to coat

    This is a good idea! I make the same kind of idea but with hershey’s kisses. If you are able to get the square pretzels (snyders makes them… their shape is called butter snaps or something like that) you top them with a hershey kiss. Then you pop them in the oven on 200 degrees for a few minutes. You will know they are done when the chocolate looks shiny. After that, you can either press down the kiss a bit to join it with the pretzel, or top the pretzel with another pretzel to make a pretzel and chocolate sandwich. They are yummy and super easy! 🙂
