This VERY TASTY dish only made two servings for this gluttonous shrimp loving person! :) I did not have shallots, and used green onions instead; I added two minced garlic cloves, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. After sauteing the shrimp, I added a sliced navel orange, and thickened the sauce with a bit of cornstarch dissolved in a tad of cold water. I liked the crunch of the almonds, and because the sauce is sweet from the marmalade, I really liked the fresh burst of tartness from the navel orange segments ~ next time I may add two sliced navel oranges! I served this over rice, with broccoli spears on the side. Made for my adopted baby, Spring PAC 2012!
