READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by BarbryT

I got this from a recipe card at Central Market in Shoreline, Washington. Sounds good to me.

This was very nice, but a little bland. I wish it had soaked up more of the orange flavor, maybe next time I would marinate the shrimp in some orange juice for a bit beforehand. I did have to leave out the red peppers though which may have given it that added bit of flavor it was lacking. I served this over couscous with more orange zest, balsamic vinegar, almonds and parsley.
