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.

These shrimps are great. We all loved it but I had to omit the red pepper flakes if I wanted DS to eat them LOL Thanks Barbry. :)

This made us a nice meal. I doubled the red pepper flakes and made as directed. We served over nice. Next time I would add chopped onion. Thanks Barbry for sharing this recipe. Made for her win in The Best of Cookbook 2008 Swap.
