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.

Oh my goodness, our son came over and invited us to cook him dinner! He wanted steak and shrimp. I had the shrimp to make my photo swapgal Nimrodcook's jumbo shrimp with sweet and sour sauce...YES MAAM! 5 stars! And then he needed money to get steaks...he invited uS, but we paid. That's okay, we got to see him at least and we love HIS DOG. And he gave Nim's Shrimp 10 stars, he wanted to fix it his own way and I told him...to go with this...of course I cooked. YUMMIES there NIMZ! Another winner, you ROCK, and our kid loves ya too!
