    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    A simple and delicious shrimp dish. The sauce can be made ahead of time. I decreased th marmalade after reading Kitz review because 1/2 cup was my typo. Should be 1/4 cup marmalade, but feel free to add more if you like it sweeter.

      Thanks for the great recipe. The sauce is not as thick as I want it to be because I used orange juice instead of marmalade. And I added some corn starch to thicken it. Great tasty sauce to shrimp. It is really creative.

      Very nice! The sweet and sour sauce is a good complement to the spicy shrimp. Thanks for sharing!
