      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!

      Tagged this in Best of 2012 Tag game, so expectations were high. I'd give this a 4 1/2, but since we can't do that on, I'll do 5 stars. I cut this recipe down by 3, and expected it to serve 3. This was spot on, serving wise. Served over rice, and had plenty of sauce to flavor the rice with. I didn't thicken the sauce with cornstarch, as I wanted to stay true to the recipe, but I recommend that others do so....otherwise it just drains away and doesn't stick to the shrimp or rice. Thanks for sharing! Made for Best of 2012 tag game.

      Loved this recipe! I doubled it, added a pinch of red pepper flakes & a small can of mandarin oranges, then thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch. It was definitely a hit.
